About the Event

From yurts to cobwebs: this workshop with award-winning fibre artist and experienced educator, Donna

L Bennett, is an introduction to the oldest known form of textile production - wet felting. As an

introduction to the process of wet felting, this workshop is suitable for both those who have never wet

felted before and those who have some experience but wish to update their skills and perhaps learn

some new tips and tricks for edge finishing, in particular. Participants will create a piece of wearable art:

a scarf wet felted from the finest of merino wool and highlighted with embellishments such as strands of

silk.

Note to Participants:

Wet felting can be challenging for folks with back issues because frequent bending from the waist is required. Also, wet floor around your work space can pose a slipping hazard.

Please Bring:

  • Clothes you don’t mind getting wet (a water repellent apron is an option but not essential); Do not wear clothing with loose, dangling sleeves
  • An old bath towel and a large bag for taking your wet felted piece home in (it will still be wet at the end of the session)
  • A ruler and sharp scissors or rotary cutters (optional)
