Felting and embroidering mandalas on felt (#22)

In my Bhutan dream are 100 working hours, in other words 100 hours of pleasure and harmony and listening to what the angels whisper in your ear.

Instead of slippers something else can be made, like a wall hanging, bag, etc.

Workshop length: 3, 4 or 5 days

In total, both slippers have 36 mandalas, all 36 embroidered differently.
The slippers are a size 27, but of course everyone is free to choose a different size.

First we learn how to make a mold for the slippers.
We felt the slippers and work the reliefs in the felt.
We sew a leather sole under our shoes with a “boerenhemdensteek”.
And then we embroider. We work with different embroidery threads and beads.
We vary with old stitches and learn new ones.
The last course day we will have a virtual exhibition.

This workshop can be taken both here and online.

This workshop can be one theme of the Feltcarousel.
