Sampler Series in Wet Felting
Description: This workshop is designed to give the maker new tools for their fiber art toolbox. Take a textural adventure in felt-making—from simulated animal skins to roses and ruffles, we will entrap beads, learn mosaics and create raised shapes. Participants will come away with six 10”x 10” samplers featuring at least 8 techniques, with instructions and skills to uses in creating unique felted items.
Required Skills: Wear comfy shoes; be aware that felting is a vigorous physical activity and requires hand and arm strength and standing for long periods of time.
