Felted Baskets

Course Overview

At its most basic, the basket form is simply a container made to hold or carry things—and there is no reason that basket can’t be made of a soft, beautiful piece of hand-crafted felt. Explore the possibilities of creating and sewing with felt as we craft a small felt basket. We will first design and then create a piece of felt from already dyed and carded wool, then cut our felt into pieces and hand sew them into a basket. If you have never sewn with hand­made felt you are in for 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% and we do this all by hand so please come prepared to be on your feet and fully engaged in your project.
