Discover Wet Felting

With Leah Cathleen Donald

This deadline for this opportunity has passed.

Wet felting is a method of creating art using wool as your medium. This felting method is thousands of years old and has a rich history in many cultures. In this workshop, you will learn about different breeds of wool and their properties.

We’ll start by making a small sample piece of felt to help us understand the unique, natural properties of wool. Each participant will then make a larger ‘sampler’ piece of felt. We will explore working with resists, adding silk, creating texture, adding yarn, bamboo or other fibres, and different edge finishes.

This will be a fun, experimental felting class. Wet felting is a hands-on, sometimes messy art process. Wear comfortable clothes that you can get wet and not worry about.

Barbara Leighton believed that every person could be an artist if they found the right medium… perhaps felting is yours!
