One-day Felt Slipper workshops with Simone Bensdorp are being held on 16 and 17 November 2018.

These workshops are part of the inaugural Necessary Traditions festival, a celebration of resourcefulness, craft and the re-invigoration of traditions vital to the sustainability of our people and planet.

Learn to make felt slippers using natural wool and traditional felting techniques.

Simone of Wild Felt loves that she’s working with the world’s oldest known textile, and that making felt connects her to thousands of years of human history. Simone will be sharing how to make slippers using natural, undyed, New Zealand wool and traditional felting techniques.

Wool felt making is the oldest known way to make fabric, simply by combining wool, soap and water. This handmade product requires no fancy machines or chemicals; it is a simple practice that anyone can learn and use to make their own clothing.

You will make slippers using natural, undyed, New Zealand wool and traditional felting techniques. Wool is a sustainable and local resource, which makes a warm and durable slipper.

These workshops run from 10.00am to 4.00pm in the stunning Gym building at the Arts Centre.

This is a workshop suited for adults only, no children please. Bookings are essential and non-refundable.

Huge thanks to the Arts Centre, Te Matatiki Toi Ora, for supporting the festival and this workshop.
