Create a short felted scarf while learning a method of felt making. You’ll layout two light layers of colorful merino fleece and apply other fibers to create design elements. Then saturate the fibers with a little warm soapy water and roll. Throughout the workshop you’ll learn techniques for controlling and manipulating handmade felt.
