FELT SMART

Especially for teachers and educators

Often arranged through the vocational colleges' CFU

 

Feel free to contact me if you want a course for teachers.

The content can be adapted to the participants' prior knowledge and wishes.

Felting - and many other crafts - involves far more learning than the purely technical. At school, they can contribute to the students' education and versatile personal development.

 

Felting is good for children because the process is clear, playful and sensual, and it requires different skills than many other crafts. The felting process can be easily adapted to different age groups and group sizes.

 

A felt project will always be personal, even if all students basically do the same, because there are many paths in the process. It gives a great sense of ownership and space for students' different skills and approaches. It is an inclusive craft that you can master from the beginning, but which can be developed and refined so that you can always be challenged.

 

Felting does not require much equipment, and most of it can be found in the kitchen or workshop. Therefore, it is not expensive to get started either. The most important thing is good quality wool and access to water.

On the course, 3 different felting techniques are presented, which are completely basic. You can do almost anything with them. Ideas are also given for how they can be used further. During the course, topics such as preparation, materials, remedies, time consumption, practical tricks, idea generation and connection with other subjects will be touched upon and elaborated upon. We will also give a brief overview of the history of the craft.
