Felting for the Kitchen
The kitchen is a great place for handmade wool items. Potholders, tea cozies, cup cozies, placemats, hotpads, table runners, dish scrubbies, felted soap balls-- all these projects use the basic method of taking wool batting or roving, adding designs with a felting needle (or not), and using water, soap and agitation to create durable, washable, beautiful, and practical things. Students follow their skill level and Elise will guide you to create what you have in your imagination. Everyone will learn from each other and undoubtedly be inspired and challenged. Students are welcome to take just the first day of this course for 50% of tuition.
You will need the following tools for this class:
- Bring two towels and a plastic bag to bring your treasures home.
- Wear clothes that can get wet and comfortable shoes.
- Bring any special yarns or wool you have.
- Also, any images of what you hope to create are always helpful
- a bar of olive oil soap (found at co-op and North House)
- a sponge
