Wet Felting Bowls and Bags

Class Details

What to Expect

Students can expect to be working most of the time with messy materials. The process is physically demanding and hands-on. You will begin with covering your resist with wool, agitating the wool, then repeating the process multiple times. The felting process will involve a lot of agitation and repeated throwing around of the object. Students will be making one finished artwork. Students do not need any prior knowledge, but will need to be prepared for many layers of work.


All materials are included in class pricing and will be provided to students at the beginning of class.
