‘Felt in a Dish’

  • Two Hand towels
  • Roasting pan – or even an aluminium disposable roasting dish, or equivalent.
  • Piece of Bubble wrap – at least twice the size of your roasting dish.
  • Piece of smooth scrim curtain fabric. – like the slippery old terylene curtains, or a piece of nylon tulle. Don’t need to buy it. A bit bigger than your roasting pan size.
  • Icecream container to hold water.
  • A plastic shopping bag.
  • Superfine felting fleece if you have it.  Make sure it will felt if bringing your own. Several colours preferred, or swap with others on the day. To test your fleece: Roll a walnut size piece in your hand, wet it with warm soapy water or detergent and then roll it into a ball for about 5 – 10 minutes. If it doesn’t felt in this much time, don’t use it.
  • Some scraps of either silk (threads or fabric), or wool, or fine fabric. Just little bits.
  • A piece of plastic pipe, or broom handle. Only needs to be about 60 cms long. (Can share as not everyone will be at the same stage at the one time).
  • Two pegs to hang your felted piece out to dry.
  • A small plastic tray like what the supermarket puts chicken, or sausages on. With ridges in the bottom is best. Even an old soap box works OK.
  • Scissors.
Regards. Margaret P.
