Felted Bags

Course Overview

Magic. It’s one of the most frequently used words in the classroom while making felt and in this course we will dive into the magic of felt-making as you craft your own handbag. We will begin with making pre-felt, then design and lay out the bag, wet-felt the project, and finish the class as we hand sew the felt into a one-of-a-kind (coveted by friends!) handbag. If you have never sewn felt you are in for a treat- it’s an incredibly durable, light, and flexible fabric which makes it a joy to sew. From carded wool to finished felt the wool shrinks about 40 percent, and this is all done by hand; please come prepared to be on your feet and fully engaged in your project. The quiet nature of the work allows ample time for conversation about nomadic felting traditions and opportunity to share stories and ideas with fellow fiber artists
