Smooth and seamless colour transitions in your felt work are a great skill to master, as they can help accentuate sculptural forms, or provide a contrasting background to line and texture on 2D surfaces. I am often asked how to achieve seamless colour transitions, and in this video tutorial I offer you practical tips, techniques, diagrams and exercises that you can practise at home for maximum success, along with underpinning theory. 

Seamless colour transitions is part of Felting Foundations; a growing series of bite sized, “off the shelf”, instant access, mix & match video tutorials of some of the techniques and tips I am most often asked to demonstrate by students.

This tutorial is designed to be watched and worked through in your own time, any time, and is suitable for both beginners and intermediate felt makers who want to go back over some basics.  Once purchased, you have permanent access to the video and text transcript.


TYPE: Instant access video tutorial. Please note: All contents are pre-recorded. There are no "live" sessions.

CONTENTS RELEASED ON: Immediately upon purchase
REGISTRATION OPENS ON:  Tutorials can be purchased any time

COST: £60 GBP  



Video duration: 1hr 34 mins.


Topics covered in this tutorial include:


  • Understanding the ways fibres behave

  • Colour theory basics

  • Building up colour through the layers

  • Smooth blending of colours across the surface

  • Utilising the intrinsic characteristics of wool fibres for successful colour blending

  • Pitfalls to be aware of

  • Choosing fibres

  • Two sample exercises for practice including diagrams


This tutorial works especially well paired with Felting Foundations - Fibre fundamentals: Back to basics (understanding wool). 


But in fact, all of the tutorials being developed in this growing series work are designed to complement each other, and to form the foundational building blocks for your very own felt making library. 



An assumption is made you already have all the felt making equipment and materials you will need for this tutorial. 

  • Your usual felt making equipment

  • Your usual wool fibres in multiple colours

  • Your usual wool fibres in both black and white

  • Colour wheel (available in art supply stores and online)




  • Any beginner felt maker wishing to learn how to transition colours smoothly

  • Any intermediate-advanced felt maker wishing to improve their colour transitions

  • Any of my students preparing for a mask making masterclass  or other on-location workshop


Please note that this workshop is NOT suitable for complete beginners to felt making. Some basic wet felting knowledge is assumed.




The thinking behind these tutorials is that (unlike my scheduled online courses) they are non-project based, and instead focus on developing you overall skills set and understanding of wool and felt making. Felting Foundations tutorials are designed to form the foundational building blocks of your very own personalised felt making library, and can be watched and worked through in your own time, any time. The contents are just as detailed as my other courses and workshops, but will be immediately accessible upon registering, rather than drip fed to you. Access is permanent, so you can always refer back to the materials when you need to!


Felting Foundation tutorials can be taken on their own, or in co-junction with any of my other online and on location workshops and courses. They are especially helpful for those preparing for any of my mask making master classes.


I firmly believe that innovation is important to keep felt making alive and relevant in the 21st century, and it is my hope that these tutorials will give you the foundational knowledge, techniques and mastery to free you to move forward into experimentation and innovation with confidence.  Because after all, once we have mastered the rules, we know how to break them!




If you have any questions about the way these instant access video tutorials work, or how they compare to my scheduled online classes, you may well find your answer in the FAQ’s. If, after reading these through, you still have a question, please send me an email at
