What is a resist?
A resist is usually cut from a piece of pliable plastic and is placed between layers of wool to prevent the layers from felting together - to resist felting.
Felting with a resist will produce a seamless, hollow shape to make not only vessels such as decorative vases, pots, ornamental pods and bowls, but also items such as cat caves, bird houses, lampshades, bags, purses, mitts, boots, slippers and sleeves for phones, tablets and other devices.
We specifically show you how to make vessels but the methods are easily tailored to any number of other projects.
Is feltmaking an expensive hobby?
No – the basic materials are cheap and readily available, you don’t need a lot of equipment and this eBook will get you started quickly and easily.
How do I use this eBook?
In this visual eBook we show how to use three of the most common methods of felt making with a flat resist – with it fully enclosed, one-end open and two-end open. Each step in each tutorial is fully explained enabling you to follow along and make the vessel as shown, or by using your own colours and artistic flair you will be able to make many unique beautiful vessels. For each major process of felt making there is further instruction in the ‘Basic Information and Techniques’ section.
