"Learn to make seamless three-dimensional shapes, attachments, and complex multi-layer vessels as we turn fluffy wool into sculptural objects. Beginning with a short introduction to wet felting, we'll move through a series of small skill-building projects together. Then you'll have time to begin your own explorations of 3D felting techniques and see where they take you, with plenty of guidance and inspiration. This in-depth exploration will cover different techniques and approaches to making 3D felt objects, with the goal of learning to visualize, lay out, and create anything you can imagine!
All levels are welcome. Some wet felting experience is helpful, but beginners who are ready to learn a lot in a short time can join in."
Materials fee: $50 - this includes all wool you will need in class, plus tools for rolling felt which are yours to keep.
Student supply list:
"• Two old towels, and a waterproof bag or container to take wet work and towels home in.
• Optional: any favorite felting tools you may already have, and any wool you would like to try felting.
Class Level: Fascination – These classes will introduce you to a new skill, concept or technique and are open to all levels. The student may, however, be required to have a basic skill or have taken a certification class. For example, for a flat-pattern drafting class one need not know anything about flat-pattern drafting but should have a basic understanding of the sewing machine. Any prerequisites will be listed in the class description.
