Wet FElting - slippers
Immersive Workshop description
In this workshop we will be playing with both wet and needle felted wool. Our main focus will be on making a pair of warm wet felted wool slippers for the cool season ahead. Over this two day process we will slip between the layers to learn about wool as a material, how to work with it and what potential is has for future projects. What an amazing material that has been utilized over the centuries by so many cultures in different places! Let’s get cozy.
