What's Included

For many, felt is a crafting material sold in squares made out of some mish-mosh of synthetic fibers. Felting is actually extremely natural and is one of the most ancient art forms in mankind's history. It is still a widely used method which can create anything from clothing to toys and even houses. In this class, students will learn the basic process of wet felting which creates wool fabric by layering raw wool fibers, adding warm soapy water and a little elbow grease. We will make a number of felt creations such as sculptural vases and hats, or 2 dimensional items like bags and painterly tapestries. The felting process is simple but can be very versatile which makes it a great opportunity for parents and children to work together side by side.
