This class meets Wednesdays, January 11–February 15, 10 am–12:30 pm.
Explore the basics of wet felting in this foundational course! Wet felting is a handcraft medium found around the globe that can create cozy, sturdy and warm clothes and accessories as well as interesting and useful sculptural forms.
Over six sessions, students will try a new wet felting technique each week to practice the basics of working with solid forms, flat pieces, resist felting, and Nuno felting. Students will have the opportunity to choose from several small projects for each technique, from felted beads, to scarves, to a small bag or vessel. Additional time will be dedicated to finishing techniques and embellishment options. Each week’s project will be supplemented by discussion of related topics, including wool varieties, how to control shrinkage, and how each process affects color and design considerations.
Led by felting instructor Judy McDowell, this class is a perfect introduction for new felters who want a foundation for further exploration, or a refresher for those with prior experience who want a space to discuss nuances and prepare for more advanced projects. Plan to exercise your muscles and creativity with other textile lovers!
This class requires the ability to stand for long periods and some hand and arm strength. Students will pay the instructor variable materials fees depending on the projects chosen, between $25 and $50 total. Open to ages 18 and up.
