Come and explore the wonderful world of felting. In this workshop you will learn the techniques of wet felting and dry felting. Both techniques give beautiful results while creating your fiber artworks. Dyed merino wool (in a beautiful assortment of colors) and other natural fibers will become your palette while learning wet felting and dry felting. Dry felting is an added technique in this workshop. Using barbed needles along with dyed (batted) merino wool makes for a fun time of discovery. Come and have a fun workshop of play and learning about an age old technique of felting. (All skill levels welcomed!)
