Specialty Class: Felted Purse with Resist Pattern
July 19, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Friday, July 19
Are you interested in adding a new fiber art to your cache of crafts? Then join us for this fun introduction to Wet Felting!
We’ll create an adorable small, buttoned purse using merino wool roving and a “resist” pattern. Our instructor, Susan Zenier, will guide us through the steps while helping with color and design choices. You’ll be amazed at how these soft fibers hold together when subjected to hot water!
This class is designed for beginners, so if you’re curious about how to create a felted item, this is your chance to find out!
The class fee includes a one-ounce skein of merino wool roving in your choice of color – enough to make one purse. The Instructor will also provide additional accessory fibers for you to choose from for decorating your purse. These will be used to create the resist pattern on your project – and really give it that “Wow” factor!
All tools required for the project will be provided in class.
If you wish, you may purchase a button to finish off your purse (this is optional). As a student, you will receive a 10 percent discount on any additional supplies you purchase on the day of the class.
Our class instructor, Susan Zenier, is a passionate artist who works in many media. She has a strong aesthetic for mixing colors successfully to create high-impact results. Susan brings her eye for color and form to this specialty felting class.
