Creating 

a FELT HOUSE

– Tutorial video and PDF –

I recommend this tutorial for beginner and advanced feltmakers as well. The all videos are about 4 hours long. The processing time is for the small teahouse about 8 hours.

You can design a larger and more complicated version, too, if you like. In this class, I encourage you to learn and master the method so that you will be able create your own shapes and forms. Alternatively, you can use the template that I designed.

The 8 chapters will lead you through step by step:

Tools and materials list.

Aspects to consider when designing the form and decorative elements.

How to create the prefelts, or use commercial prefelt for this project.

How to build the whole pattern around the template.

How to felt and full the project

How finishing touches lead to a beautiful piece in the end.

When your felt house is finished, I would love it if you could send me a photo!
