Books taught me the basic methods of felting. I followed this up with some professional courses. It’s a simple process in it’s basic form and can quite easily be a complete accident (think expensive woolen jumper on too hot a machine wash). I’ve made a few small felted pieces – a brooch, some bookmarks and a few sample pieces (A4 size). I’ve also purchased some felting needles and created a rather useless blue circle of felt (which is almost something useful, but not quite).
