Make large jewelry with a distinctive look that is practically weightless! How, you may ask? Felting is an excellent way to do it. Spend a relaxing and inspiring weekend learning to shape a ball of soft wool into amazing 3-dimensional objects using a felting needle. The pieces produced can be worn as pendants, strung like beads, incorporated into a ring or (since it’s that time of the year) used as a treasured tree ornament! Students will start by making felted beads and a variety of other basic forms. From there the class will create a bigger piece, adding sculptural details, patterns, color and found objects. You will probably poke your finger a few times but you will have lots of fun and discover a new exciting medium.
