Create a special handbag to express your “pursonality.” Students will choose from pre-assembled purse kits which include: mohair-wool blend roving base, various yarns and colored rovings, resist frame and other wet felting tools, commercial purse handles, and leather and bead accents for handle attachment.
Students need only bring their personal felting needles imagination, enthusiasm; but students are welcome to bring any potential accent items (buttons, lace, silk, jewelry) to incorporate into the design. Students who are interested in needlefelting a design onto the finished wet-felted purse form should bring their own felting needles, although some will be available for purchase during the class.
You will learn:
- principles of felting; why fiber felts, why some fibers do not felt
- principles of resist wet felting
- basic principles of design
- how to relax and have a good time working with fiber!
