Felting provides a holistic, multisensory experince combined with creativity. Engaging visual and tactile senses "playing" with wool, water and soap is relaxing, and the pleasing outcome captures the interest of children of all ages. Felting is easy to learn, trains coordination, encourages artistic expression and is great fun.
The tradtional art of felting is done by wet felting, where wool fleece is sprinkled with hot soapy water and agitated until a firm felted fabric is formed.
A more contemporary approach is needle-felting, where wool fleece is poked with a special barbed felting needle which makes the fibres stick together to form a firm, often 3-dimensional, fabric.
