Felting: Creative Hats & Bags

Course Overview

Join featured international guest instructor Karin Flatøy Svarstad for an exploration of wool varieties and felting techniques, resulting in a wearable (or not, your choice!) hat. This felting technique is easy to learn, opens the door to innumerable creative possibilities and can be used to make bags, shoes, slippers or other forms beyond the hat. Karin’s substantial experience and knowledge of the history of sheep and textiles of the North Atlantic region will enrich the conversation and learning in this fun, creative workshop open to students of all levels. This is a great opportunity for beginning and experienced felters alike to explore this material in a creative and approachable form with expert guidance. All wool will be provided by Karin from suppliers in Norway. Plan to learn plenty about creative techniques and possibilities of wool to make useful and beautiful things.
