 'Stainglass ' refers to  the  creation of very light weight,  translucent  felt using darker lines of  fibres to   create outlines, horizons and definition. This allows for the  light to  travel through the work , which  will give an extra dimension to  the finished piece. 

The felting  techniques that we will use will incorporate  a mix a  traditional   & more modern techniques.

SOME PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE IN WET FELTING IS ADVISED but not essential.
