FELT | WEAR | ABLE

Our mission is to give you the knowledge, skills and, most importantly, the desire to make the best quality FELT in the objects you view and WEAR, which you will be ABLE to use in your own work long after the completion of the workshop. It sounds like everything is 'Wearable,' but we have workshops in sculptural forms and items for the home as well as art to wear. We offer the best of Australian and international tutors to teach you, when they are available in Victoria, Australia.
