Looking for a new art form to try this year? Wet felting is the process by which wool, warm water, soap and agitation are used to create a non-woven felted fabric. These are the key ingredients for a highly creative afternoon! Join us as we explore the possibilities of wet felting techniques and create a unique luminary vessel for your home.
Felting can be repetitive and labor intensive. Special felting tools will be available to try, and different rolling techniques/modifications will be discussed to ensure success for everyone. Felting can be wet and soapy at times. Students are asked to bring 2 old bath towels, wear appropriate clothing and be prepared to have some ‘good clean fun’.
Lunch is not supplied so please feel free to bring a bagged lunch, or something to snack on.
