For All Levels
In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn the basics of developing a thin, soft, flexible, flat wet felt fabric usable for a variety of clothing uses by creating a unique scarf. Suitable for participants of all skill levels, the end product is usable as-is as a scarf, table runner, wall hanging or as the base for a vest, jacket or skirt.
Wet felting requires no spinning or knitting and capitalizes on the natural attributes of animal hair fibers to bond to form a "non-woven" fabric. During the half day workshop, each student will work with hand-dyed, super soft merino wool. The materials include a choice of hand painted merino in a variety of color options, natural colored and hand dyed long wool and mohair locks, natural colored Shetland fleeces and other add ins.
$35 class fee + $30 materials fee.
