What’s it all about? 

Felted soap. Never heard of it? Well that’s okay. You’re in the right place.

This class uses the technique of wet felting to create a felt casing around bars of soap, which becomes a soft soapy sponge when washing.

Wool is a natural fibre which can be felted – synthetics won’t work – and the special bonus is that wool is also antibacterial. Encasing soap in this way adds to its use life, without the soap dissolving away.

It’s also a useful project for learning about wet felting, which is completely different to needle felting. So come along to another wonderful class with Heather, and personalise your felting project.

  • The basics of wet felting
