Are you Fiber-Curious? Have you wondered how felt is made or wanted to try to make felt yourself?  We will discuss the basics of felt-making from a brief overview of the history of felting and the tools needed, to a discussion of various fibers and embellishments that can make your felting interesting and textural. Through this class you will gain an understanding of the techniques that can be used to turn your roving into a beautiful vessel. We will use a resist to layout a “flat” design which opens to a 3-D bowl or vase shape. Gain the fundamentals to make all kinds of structural and sculptural pieces using the resist.  Please note that the process of felt is physical and requires the use of hands, arms and fingers   Student Supply List:  Bucket for water Pen or Sharpie Marker Scissors Small container of dish soap 2 towels Tape measure
