Make a textile necklace with Susan Smith

3 August @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Associated with the ‘Wool Works’ exhibition which will open at Craft NI Gallery on July 7, this workshop will be lead by Susan Smith, a member of the Makers’ Guild in Wales and the textile group MaP.

In this full day workshop you will be shown how to make beads of rolled wool fabric or hand-made felt which, when interspersed with spacer beads, will form a unique, lightweight necklace.  The materials will be typical Welsh stripes and checks mainly in traditional shades of slate, black and red; the fabric beads can be embellished with tiny beads and/or basic embroidery stitches for which tuition will also be given.

All materials will be supplied including fabrics, threads, embellishments and findings but please feel free to bring along anything of your own that you may like to include. 


Please bring a basic sewing kit containing scissors, sewing needles, pins etc.

Participants:  Maximum 10.         

Please note: bring your own lunch; coffee and tea will be provided.
