Felting Wearables - Mittens and Booties
This workshop is a lot of fun and very fast paced. Students will be able to choose when they get there between mittens or booties for their project. If you’re considering making a pair of boots, slippers or mittens for a lucky person not with you, please trace their foot or hand on a plain piece of paper to bring to the workshop. This will be used as a template for your work.
We’ll learn the primary methods used in flat felting – which is really a misnomer. Flat felting is anything that is not felted in the washing machine or needle-felted. You can make fitted booties and slippers, mittens, hats, purses, and landscape tapestries using whatever color combinations you’d like. This workshop is truly for the creative hand and heart and it utilizes methods that have evolved over thousands of years by countless civilizations.
The first objective in all workshops is to have fun, meet new friends and try something adventurous. We value all of the knowledge our workshop participants bring to the get-together. Even if they didn’t know that they possessed some special talent, it always comes out in a friendly atmosphere and everyone contributes to the whole.
Required Skills: None. This workshop is designed for everyone no matter what your experience in felting or working with wool.
