It FELT nice...

Lizzy Wetzel taught our first felting class this past Saturday. Students were introduced to the history and process of flat felting. Felt is the oldest textile known to man, and has been created for centuries all over the world for use as clothing, shelter, rugs, and art.  Our four part workshop series explores the traditions and process of felting from dying wool rovings to using felt to draw and build. Students learn to create both decorative and functional objects.
Each student is provided with a felting resource and sample binder. We are offering three additional felting classes this fall. Our next classes are:

October 10th, 1-4pm FELTING AND WOOL DYEING
December 4th, 1-4pm DRAWING WITH FELT
December 11th, 1-4pm SCULPTING WITH FELT

Students interested in gaining a deeper understanding of this versatile art material should consider registering for the full series. Please register online.
