Wool Felting Class. Make Mittens or Slippers
Make your own slippers or mittens from raw wool! Have you always wondered how wool is made into a wearable, felted clothing or accessory? This class will show you the transformation of fluffy wool to cozy slippers/mittens! This experience will walk you through how to make your own slippers or mittens from wool. We will use the "wet felting" technique to shape and size your mittens or slippers. You will make your own warm and cozy mittens or slippers or make a pair to give as a gift! We will start in a rustic Art Studio cabin and determine your slipper or mitten size. I will show you the basic steps prior to starting and then work with you as you layer the fluffy wool into the shape of the pattern. As the class progresses we will add warm, soapy water and start the felting process! The next step is called "fulling" on an antique wash board. The final step is finishing your mittens or slippers by fitting them to your hands or feet while they are still damp. You will take them home slightly wet, but they should dry by morning. All mittens and slipper will start with a neutral color. I will show you how to decorate with colored wool and "needle felting".
PLEASE request a time and I will work you into my schedule!
