This three day class introduces you to felt bead-making production in a variety of sizes and shapes such as popcorn, log, flat and round, as well as cut-pendant spirals.

You will learn to make quality felt cords, pendants, and bangles. Upon completion of some beads, further embellishment through over-dyeing will achieve a greater range of colour combinations, and increase the choice of patterns and shapes. These felted parts are suitable for additional stitching and/or bead application.

Open to all levels.

 About the tutor

Jorie Johnson was first introduced to feltmaking in 1977 when she learned how to make Scandinavian felt boots, and was immediately enchanted by the magic and power of felting. After studying industrial textile design for fashion and interiors, she returned to the traditional medium of feltmaking. Her combination of rich colours and layering techniques results in warm, one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories for the discerning collector.

Jorie holds a part-time lecturing post in the Textile Design Department of the Kyoto University of Art and Design and exhibits her contemporary feltworks in galleries, shops, and museums around the world.

You can find out more information about her practice on her website,
