International Feltmakers Association

Hello my name is Louise. I will be your mentor for this online workshop. My first taste of feltmaking was over 10 years ago with Sheila Smith, our last IFA President. I was hooked at my very first class and have spent most of my spare time since trying to learn more and more exciting techniques. I hope you enjoy your exploration as much as I did and continue to do.

About this course

Thank you for enrolling on this course, you are very welcome here. 

This IFA course has been developed to show you how to use coloured wool creatively to enhance your feltmaking. Coloured wool in feltmaking can be compared to the artist’s palette. 

Just as a painter would choose the type of paint and method of application to achieve the effect required, then the feltmaker must make similar choices with wool.

Using only 3 primary colours and black and white you will learn how to expand your colour palette and add colour to the surface of your felt in a variety of ways.

Soon you will receive an email explaining your requirements for materials and equipment and a little more information about the course. If you wish to buy the IFA fibre pack you can order it here Make sure you order in good time to allow for shipping.

You may wish to take this learning further by working towards the IFA Excellence in Feltmaking Award. More information is available on the website here

We look forward to seeing you when the course opens
