WET FELTED VESSELS “FROM VALENTINES to VASES”
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.
