Felt Workshop: Wet Felted Vessels from Valentines to Vases – Spring 2019


Indulge your creativity through fibers!  In the workshop, you will create one or more 3-dimensional wool vessels.  Embellishments can be added such as silk hankies, silk roving, wool fibers and yarns ….to  decorate your one of a kind vessel. 

Wool fibers will be layered around a foam resist, wet with slightly soapy water, then rubbed and rolled to tangle and bind the fibers together to form a non-woven fabric, which is felt.  To shrink and full your forms, you will squeeze and possibly throw them, making them more dense and thick. 

Felt making is a very physical activity.  Most of the work will be done while standing.  Wear comfortable shoes and clothing that you don’t mind getting wet.   Each person should bring 2 or 3 old bath towels. 

For beginners & all levels.
