Workshop Summary: Felting 101 – how learning a few basic techniques can lead to hundreds of creations. We will spend the morning learning the basics with wool fibers, including how to create a rope, ball and piece of cloth. Students will be exposed to wet and dry felting techniques, different types of wool and embellishments, including silk. In the afternoon you can design your own project using the techniques you’ve been taught using a variety of fibers, including specialty fibers and beads. Examples of projects to complete will be covered and individual help will be provided. The time in this class will lend itself to creating felted jewelry, ornaments, flowers, belts, coasters, etc. Tate can also help you start a larger project, but the nature of the process of felting may not allow you time to finish it in the class.
