The Felted Vessel class is a great introduction to wet felting for the curious artist or crafter. Each student will learn how to make quality felt, create a resist, and learn different methods to create a variety of texture and patterns for future designs. Whether a novice or experienced felter, everyone will make a fabulous 3-dimensional wet felted vessel of their own creation. More advanced felt-makers may incorporate multiple techniques into their vessel. This class is hard work, but loads of fun and chock full of creativity!
