Class Content: We will make a small tote bag, approximately 11 by 10 inches, using the wet felting method. No experience necessary as I will walk you through each step. We will layout the wool fibers over a resist, wet with soapy water, and roll it up into a bundle and then begin the agitation phase. The photos show some example bags, some plain, and some with designs that are wet felted into the wool. You will be able to choose your style according to your comfort level with working with the fibers once the class is in progress. The small class size will allow us to work together to achieve the results you desire. I will have a few “kits” of colored wool available so you will have some choices, but the colors in the photos may not be available.
You will learn the important skill of weighing your wool and planning for multiple layers. You will use a resist to make a three-dimensional object out of wool fibers that requires no sewing. You will learn how the directional layout of wool fibers affects the shrinkage of the final bag we are making. You will make an amazing bag with a little soap and a lot of wool!
