Saturday we will begin with a wall hanging "painted" with hand dyed fibers including wool, silk and mohair. Starting with a wool background, you will learn the tricks to use silk and mohair fibers with the wool to create your own unique design. We will discuss how to make a flat, even piece of felt with a nice edge. No holes unless you want them.
Sunday's class will be devoted to shaped felt. You choose your project - hat, gloves, purse, vessel or something else. Demonstrations will fill the weekend and hands-on help will be plentiful. Beginners are welcome.
