Wet Felting

July 24 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Navigation

Wool fibers have tiny scales that stick out from the hair shaft a microscopic bit. When wool is shocked by dramatic changes in temperature or by rubbing (especially with soap), those scales lift up, then lock down the nearby fibers into a dense mass. That’s felt. If you’ve accidentally put your wool sweater through the hot wash cycle and/or the dryer, you have intimate knowledge of this process.

 

Not all felting is destructive. You can use the same process to produce some wonderful wooly art. In this class you’ll use a white batt as a base, and embellish with a wide variety of dyed wool. You’ll leave with a finished piece and the equipment you’ll need to create more at home.
