Come take a journey into the wonderful world of felt making and learn about the rich history of this ancient textile that dates back to 6000 BC and is still going strong today. You will go from making a seamless pouch using the ancient method of felt making to the modern day method of sculpting with wool called needle felting. You will leave with a little seamless pouch that can be finished at home into an accessory bag or whatever you want and a little needle felted sheep.
Instructor Rose Kramer is an accomplished felt maker and owner of Sheep’s in the Meadow designs. She has taught, lectured and created felt for over 15 years and has studied under world renowned felt artists.
