Felt Basics with Linda Brooks Hirschman

Discover the limitless possibilities of wet felting in this hands-on workshop. Learn the basics of felting, including why and how wool felts with only fleece, soap and water. Experiment with mixing colors of fleece and making various thicknesses of material. Learn how to embellish the felt surface with yarn, curls, silk, and make your own designs using hand-made pre-felted pieces. You will quickly complete several projects, including a 3 dimensional seamless bowl and wall hanging. We will discuss how to shape felt into sculptures and stiffen your projects. After you learn Linda’s tried-and-true, unconventional techniques and shortcuts, you can continue making sculptural objects or make beautiful felt yardage for pillows, blankets, vests, coats, and more.
