Learn everything you need to know to begin wet felting in a relaxed and supportive environment. In this beginner friendly workshop, you will get to choose your favorite colors from a beautiful assortment of wool fiber and layer pieces to create a felted ball, which will then be cut open at the end of the workshop to reveal your unique geode! 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. All materials are included, and you’ll leave the workshop with a beautiful geode to display in your home. Coffee and tea will be served as well.
