When heat, moisture and pressure are applied to wool, the fibers bond together to create felt -it's like magic! Using this basic technique and learning the fundamental methods for making beads, ropes and flat pieces of felt, we will combine them to create all kinds of wonderful felt objects including jewelry, wallhangings, animals and much more. We will learn how to do both wet felting and needle felting in this class. Plus using felted wools to sew together to make into fun objects to wear or to display.
