Finally! Date for next felting workshop April 12-13

THANK YOU all for your patience! I finally confirmed with Sarratt that we have the weekend of April 12-13, 2008 for the next felting weekend workshop. The topic will be "Cover It With Felt", and we will explore techniques for covering various objects (bottles, heads, hands, feet, whatever...) with seamless felt coverings. Following an introduction to wet felting for those who need it, we will start with a simple bottle cover to introduce three-dimensional felting, shaping, and fitting. Then we will progress to additional projects of your choice. The average student should be able to complete the bottle cover as well as something like a hat and a pair of mittens in the two days with the materials provided. Additional materials will be available (at cost) for those that want to do more! We will be working primarily with merino wool, but feel free to bring additional materials to explore (and sample!) with. Small quantities of additional fibers will be available to experiment with as well.

Schedule - Saturday and Sunday April 12 and 13, 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. both days
Cost - $125 including materials
Limit - 10

A $50 deposit will reserve your spot and guarantee there will be enough materials for the class.
Please send deposits to:
