Felt Exploration and Play
Wet felting turns combed wool into solid fabric. Using hands, water, soap, and friction there are infinite possibilities. We will learn how wool and silk meld together to make a strong fabric- felt. Learn about properties of wool that felts and how we can add other fibres and fabrics. How to make a three-dimensional object in felt or it can be flat! Play with colours and textures.
The goal is to explore and play without a pre-conceived idea of what you are making. Depending upon what decisions you make you will end up with a cowl or a small bag or a wall piece or a unique piece of material to stitch further.
