Wet Felted Geode Workshop

Learn everything you need to know to begin wet felting in a relaxed and supportive environment.

We’ll also be adding a resist in the center of our geodes that will allow the finished piece to be hollow, creating an even more realistic geode! Wet felting is a process that requires only soap, water, wool, and your hands to create felt; so unlike needle felting, there are no needles involved. No experience is necessary.
