Learn everything you need to know to begin wet felting in a relaxed and supportive environment in this beginner-friendly workshop. Choose your favorite winter colors from a beautiful assortment of wool fiber, then layer pieces to create a felted ball, which will be cut open at the end of the workshop to reveal your geode! A resist added in the center of the geodes will allow the finished piece to be hollow, making it an even more realistic geode. Wet felting is a process that requires only soap, water, wool, and your hands to create felt – there are no needles involved. No experience is necessary. All materials are included, and you will leave the workshop with a beautiful geode to display in your home or on your tree.
Visit Grey Fox Mercantile on Saturday, November 30th between 9am and 5pm, and string your own wool felt ball garland to take home with you! Suitable for children and adults – make one for yourself, give one as a holiday gift, or make one together as a family!
100% wool felt balls in assorted colors will be provided, as well as a 4 ft. length of waxed linen twine and a needle for threading. Aside from the colorful cheer these garlands bring to your home, the wonderful thing about these garlands is that you can space the balls any way you like and they will stay wherever you place them on the string!
Cost is $7 per garland. Each garland includes 16 felt balls.
Pre-made holiday garlands will also be available for purchase.
