Felted Vessel Workshop


Adult Enrichment / Fine Arts & Crafts -
Winter 2022

Felting, the oldest known way to make fabric, combines layers of wool fibers into one flat piece without knitting or weaving. This workshop will cover two methods of making a three-dimensional object by wet-felting wool fleece or roving, using soap, water, and friction. The first method involves molding the wool fleece over a stiff form, such as a glass, plastic, wood or stainless steel bowl, jar, or vase, or a rubber ball. The second method involves covering a thick, flexible piece of plastic, a “resist,” with fleece and, by felting, transforming a flat surface into a 3-dimensional object. Your completed felted bowl will make a unique decor accent or can be used for a variety of functional applications, such as a key dish, pencil holder, or curio container. Tuition includes a $20 materials fee.
