Wooly Critters: Intro to Felting

Course Overview

Wool has the amazing capability of taking on great shapes, strength and forms when wet felted. In this class we will use the ancient practice of felting wool to sculpt a purely aesthetic and charming menagerie of creatures, both real and imagined. Using recycled wool, students will make a rough animal form, and then apply dyed wool roving over the form. Through the mysterious process of agitation, hot water and soap, a felted creature will emerge. Everyone will go home with a creature of their own design and an understanding of felting which could be transferred to other projects such as slippers, hot pads, tea cozies etc. This is an especially great opportunity for young imaginations to put their creative inclinations to work.
