Event Description

Feltmaking is an ancient art form used for both the creation
of wearables as well as artistic self expression. It is the
magical creation of fabric without weaving, knitting or
crocheting. L earn about the art of feltmaking and create your

felt, choosing the right wool for the project, preparation,
combining needle and wet felting, and post production

feltmaking for those with little or no experience, providing the
building blocks to take feltmaking in any direction you chose.
