This is an exciting online workshop where you will make a free standing figure 20″/50cm tall. You will learn a new, energetic wet felted process that has similarities to clay sculpting and can be easily adapted to make any shape or form.
The course is suitable for intermediate felt makers and will include simple hand sewing techniques.

This workshop is limited to a small group of 15 felters.
Lessons, with activities, open each week and take you through, step-by-step, how to designs and make a Contemporary Dancer.

ABOUT THE ONLINE CLASSROOM
The online classroom is hosted by RUZUKU
Online teaching materials and resources are available to students for 6 months from the beginning of the class. The downloadable course material and PDF’s are yours forever.
There is an online course Discussion Forum where you can chat to me and fellow students, – post comments and images.
I also run and weekly Zoom meetings online where you will meet fellow felters and ask me questions.
I will respond to all comments and questions during the length of the course and while the online classroom is open – I am mindful that there is a lot of work to do and it may take some of you a little longer than the 6 weeks. As you will have full access to the videos, online class materials and Discussion Forum for 6 months, there will be plenty of time to work at your own pace.
It will be an amazing journey and you will learn a truly new and unique process!
Join me to learn how to make your own fabulous dancer, full of movement and energy!

What my students say…..
‘ Thank you soooo much for providing this wonderful opportunity to follow your tutorial!!! Your videos, hand outs, and personal connection has been outstanding! ‘ Tina
‘Molly – thank you for such a wonderful course. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning along with you and the other class participants. I greatly appreciated the research and design aspects of this course – it goes beyond the making of just one object , into how to think about gathering inspiration, researching , planning through drawing and observation and using wool fibres as a sculpture. You have provided quick responses to questions , positive feedback and encouragement as well as added additional material….’ Cheryl
‘I took a course with you and it was absolutely fantastic to learn these unique new techniques. I am a wet felter and the way that Molly has innovated wet felting techniques to create more sculptural forms (rather than using needle felting) is really interesting and opened up a whole new arena of possibilities for me for creating strong shapes – this is so innovative and exciting, thank you so much for sharing your way of working’ Mia Hartgroves
‘I loved the workshop. I am so glad we had the time to start to get to know each other. You have totally inspired me.’ Amy
‘Overall, I think the whole package so far is high quality, organized, easy to follow and maneuver around. The videos are very clear. I find I can speed them up, slow them down or pause as needed to catch up. Well done!!!’ Beth
