Make a cat cave house for your pet in this fun creative class. Join Yula, our award-winning fibre artist, and gain skills in advanced wet-felting techniques. Learn about the properties of woollen fibres and how best to manipulate and process them to create a seamless 3D cat-cave-house. You'll also have the opportunity to try your hand at basic pattern drafting. Finally, you'll enjoy decorating your cat-cave to you and your puss-cat’s taste!
Yula is an animal lover so it is important to her that no animal suffers as part of her creative practice. Felting for her is an art form that is life focused and respects the lives of the animals whose fibre she uses to make her art.
Combining her love of animals and her creative fibre practice, Yula’s "Cat Cave House" class is representative of both herself as a compassionate person and as an artist. You will enjoy an inclusive class environment as well as the satisfaction of having a wonderful cat house you have made yourself. Your cat will love you!
All materials included in course fee, but please bring a large container to carry your cat-cave home in as it will still be wet by the end of the class.
Tea and coffee provided for your breaks, but please bring a snack and a cup to help save on disposables.
