Felting with a resist will produce a seamless, hollow shape and in this visual book 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 make the vessel as shown, or by using your own colours and artistic flair you will be able to make many unique beautiful vessels.
