Wet Felting a Vessel

Wool is beautiful, colorful, and organic, and its magic is in its power as shape-shifter. Learn the art of 3-dimensional felting, a process that starts by layering fine wool fibers over a flat resist, and with plenty of rubbing and rolling, the fibers can be shaped into a strong and beautiful vessel. You will need a way to heat water, and an old towel. The classes will take place in 2 sessions, September 15 and September 22.

If you can’t attend the program, you can find the instructions for your own Felt Vessels here!
