ONSITE: Introduction to Wet Felting

Learn and practice foundational wet felting skills that can be used to create 2D and 3D art objects. Wet felting is a process in which you take raw wool fiber and form it into soft objects by agitating the fibers together with soap and water. Projects will include learning how to make felted forms, including beads, and a wet felted collage fusing fabric with wool.

Special Notes

  • Students should be aware that felting takes stamina and we will be standing and rolling which can be laborious. Materials fee includes various colors of wool that the class will share- if you would like specific colors, please order this wool: https://www.outbackfibers.com/superfine-merino-wool-roving/
