Explore the ancient and time-honored art of wet felting with wool – a material that is colorful, organic, and extraordinary in its strength and flexibility. The process starts by layering fine Merino wool strands and massaging them with warm soapy water, and with the use of a resist, create a 3 dimensional shape. Choose to make a vessel or small purse. Participants will go home with a work of art and a life-long love of felting. All needed tools are available for use during class time, with the wool provided for you to take home.
