If you have been thinking about getting your hands wet and giving felt-making a try, this is the perfect opportunity. In this playful class you’ll learn how felting happens, how to lay down the wool with the shingling technique, and learn how blend different colors of wool and different fibers while working on a hollow shape. We’ll introduce various yarns and fibers to create rich surfaces, and add some silk fabric pieces to explore the lamination felt technique.
After taking this class you’ll have an understanding of how to felt any other hollow shapes: purses, hats, mittens or slippers.
