Origami Felt Scarf / Cowl

In this class we will combine the Japanese art of origami with wet felting techniques. Learn how to lay out and shape the wool so it retains beautiful angular shapes once felted.

If you prefer, you can make a cowl instead, we will discuss how to plan out your design so it folds up evenly.

This class is for adults and suitable for intermediate feltmakers and confident beginners (you should be able to lay out wool fibres evenly.
