Felted Wool Vessel
with Kimberly Tanzos
Sunday, November 26 | 1:00 - 4:00 pm
In this one day workshop, students will use wet felting to create a vessel or bowl. Wet felting is a process where wool, warm water, soap, and agitation are combined to create felt. We will combine this process with the use of a resist form to construct the vessel. Come and try this unique craft, and leave with a beautiful work of art to display in your home!
