Wet felting is a centuries-old process of combining layers of wool roving and/or wool yarns into one flat piece of felt fabric using just soap and water. It has traditionally been used to make everything from clothing to tents, and is an extremely meditative process. In this course you review the basics of the technique and learn how you can apply it to your fine art practice to create inspired tapestries and vessels. By the end of class you will have discovered a new and accessible form of art that requires minimal tools and space and has exciting results.
