The art of weaving is usually associated inescapably with two elements: needle and thread. In this course of the duo Déjate Querer -integrated by Ana Paula Alatriste and Rocío Cortés- you will not have to worry about a puncture or to pass the thread through the buttonhole, because the technique that we propose is that of the wool felt fabric, which practice without the need for these elements.

In this course you will learn how to manipulate wool felt to generate textile designs, from repeating patterns and using an assembly technique that will allow you to decide the shape and size of your creation.

You will begin knowing a little more the work of Ana Paula and Rocío, who will also explain to you how and why they started working with wool felt.

They will speak to you after the qualities of the material and its different uses. You will know their process of inspiration and production to generate and assemble geometric pieces.

From here, you will fully enter the production of your carpet: you will learn first to create a template to cut your pieces of felt wool, you will learn to dye a homemade way of the desired color, and then weave them without the need for threads.

Finally, you will know the different applications that you can give your designs within the scope of interior design and how to take care of the pieces that you will weave in the course.

What is this course's project?

You will create a wool felt carpet of 120 cm x 150 cm.
