Felting For Your Feet
Keep your feet warm this winter! Playfully warm! Discover the blend of heat, moisture and agitation as applied to wool to create your own pair of colorful stockings or booties for your feet. Even though the tradition of felting predates spinning and weaving and has had many uses over the years, from yurts in Mongolia to armor in medieval times to hats, mittens, and booties in Scandinavian countries, felting is a wonderful expression of contemporary styles that's both playful and fun. These might be the warmest pair of slippers you've ever owned. Made mukluks? After this class, you'll now be able to make your own liners. Using washed and carded wool, students prepare batts and then use a washboard, hot soapy water and a lot of elbow grease to make a pair of felted booties.
