”Funky boots"

March 14-15, 2020
by Elina Saari

This workshop will introduce you to Elina´s way of making funky & unique felt boots. This workshop is great for both beginners and experienced felt makers since boots can be kept relatively simple by design or they can be made to look exquisitely extraordinary.

”Funky boots” will also challenge you since Elina is convinced that the students will have 1-2 unique pair of boots ready to take home with them once the course is over, this means hard work and long hours, but it´s going to be worth it!

As in hat making it is the process of building your design that takes the most of the time, the actual felt making is relatively straight forward and quick.

The different techniques you´ll learn can easily be applied to your own felt designs later on. Bring your laughter and sense of humour, let´s make boots that are made for walking and showing off!
