Wet Felting for Beginners - Instructor:  Brigitte Bere
3 days      $150      Wed Aug 22 to Fri Aug 24
   This workshop is for everyone interested in working with fibers, no special knowledge is required. You will work with warm, soapy water and roving to create fabric. Beginners and experienced artists are welcome! This course gives you an introduction to wet felting. We will create 2 or 3 pieces of art that can be framed or made into other art objects. To fine tune your design I will have felting needles on hand to work with your art pieces.

    There will be a brief talk about the Wet Felting process and Brigitte will show some of her own work and talk about how she achieved the results. She will demonstrate each morning. Step by step you will learn the process of Wet Felting with your ideas in mind.
