Wet Felting Basics

Wet Felting Basics


Mandisa Smith, co-owner of Detroit Fiber Works, will teach the basics of the magical, ancient fiber art of wet felting.

This is a basic felting class for students with little to no experience or knowledge of wet felting. Students will be creating an original 12x12 piece of felted fabric which the student can then transform into an item of their own choosing (small purse/bag, wall hanging, eyeglass case, coaster, etc). Topics covered will include: a brief history of wool and its use in felting, how felting occurs, and the felting process using the wet felting technique. Instructor demonstration and hands on assistance will provide students with a small felted sampler to take home. All materials are provided, however, students may want to bring an apron and towel as we will be working with soap and water.

Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult who is also registered for this workshop.
