An ancient art form that has been practiced for centuries around the world, felting has its roots in nomadic cultures where with the simplest of tools, artisans transformed fibers in to tough and longer lasting garments and adornments. Contemporary practice includes decorative and sculptural elements limited only by the imagination. In this workshop, explore the magic of needle felting! This versatile technique can be used to create felt from roving without water. Fashion a fun, funky felt bead necklace, and hatch a lovely owl from roving.
Class price includes a materials fee of $10 that covers basic materials. Students may bring optional supplies: sharp scissors, felt, yarn and fabric scraps, beads and buttons, unused thick household sponge.
