Felting an A5 book cover- how did it go?

The lovely finished book cover by Fiona Leech

At the end of January Felt makers Ireland hosted its first online zoom workshop ever! The first of many, we hope, while we can’t all be together face to face.

Our Tutor Gabi Mc Grath led participants through a 3hr workshop making an A5 felted book cover with  closure mechanism.

by Annika Berglund

Gabi is a familiar face on the Irish felting workshop circuit, a former chair of Feltmakers Ireland she is familiar with many of our members and happily has experience teaching via zoom.

30 participants were enrolled, and it is thanks to the dedicated volunteers on the committee that the workshop was able to go ahead.

We were delighted to have such a turn out and an enthusiastic bunch. It’s a strange world that we all find ourselves navigating but for one morning in January it almost felt like we were together- felting!

Thanks to Gabi and her top tips and guidance many participants have since sent in images of their finished pieces… here are a selection!

Thanks to Gabi McGrath for your help with the first event of the year!

Thanks also to so many of the participants for sending wonderful images and feedback to our very first online course.
