Workshop: Vegetarian Sheepskin Seat Pad
December 9, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm$166
Create a “Vegetarian Sheepskin” Seat Pad
Saturday, December 9, 2023 10:30-4:00 PT
Learn how to use wet felting to create faux sheepskin pelts. In this class we will work on making seat pads but you will leave with the knowledge (and your pad and other materials) needed to create full size rugs, scarves, throws, pet beds, and anything else you might see a pelt used for. All materials will be provided, including the wool, so you can even say hi to the sheep you will be sitting on.
Ability to stand at a table and do rolling pin type motions for an extended amount of time is necessary. This class will be outdoors so please dress accordingly and keep in mind that this process can be messy and wet. There will be time for a break so be sure to bring a lunch.
Teacher: Siobhan Harlakenden is enthusiastic about all things wool. She is a delightful teacher and brings her interest in historical textile construction to her classes, the latest of which was Medieval Distaff and Spindle Spinning at Lambtown 2023.
Workshop fee: $100
Materials fee: $66
The materials fee includes all the wool you will need and the supplies that are used to create the faux sheepskin. You will be able to reuse some of those supplies for your next project at home.
