Felt a simple tulip-shaped vessel without using a resist (in other words, by utilizing the basics of “differential shrinkage” in felting terminology). Explore how the direction of the wool and the number of layers is the secret to creating this lovely tulip shape. Learn strategies of differential shrinkage which you can apply to create a variety of three-dimensional forms. Previous wet felting experience optional. Beginners welcome! (You don’t even need to know what a resist is!)
Please note: this class requires some physical stamina.
Students are asked to bring:
- 2-3 hand towels
- 1 old bath towel
- sharp scissors
- plastic bag to carry home wet items.
- Optional: apron
- We highly recommend you bring a lunch as this class does go over the lunch hour.
No experience required. Some physical stamina needed for felting classes.
Students 18 and older are welcome to join.
