Felted Pod / Bowls

Join me to learn how to make a vessel from felted wool. I will explain how to lay out fibre and share several ways you can decorate your pod with silk hankies or fibres. Learn how to full (firmly felt) and shape your vessel so the felt is sturdy.

This class is for adults and suitable for beginners.
