Ever wondered how you can transform sheep’s wool into a beautiful felted vessel? During this class you will learn the process where wool, warm water, soap and agitation are combined to create felt. You will come to understand the basic principles of the craft as well as what the terms “resist”, “felting” and “fulling” refer to. All participants in the class will design and create a unique one of a kind 6” vessel that they will take home with them. Prior experience or knowledge is not a requirement. Be sure to dress comfortably as you could get a little wet. Be ready for a bit of a workout, felting is great exercise!
