Felting Program: June 5th

Three felted squares side by side. Each is a different design. First is blue background with orange-red dots, second is yellow background with multi color crosshatch lines, and the third is red background with varying sizes of rectangles of contrasting colors.


Felting Program: Lines and Shape in Felt
(Rescheduled program)
Saturday, June 5th 1:30-4:00 pm
$20 program fee *7 participant maximum*
*Out of respect for each other’s health, we are wearing masks and practicing social distancing. We ask that you join us in this healthy practice when participating in our programs.*
Learn how to make a flat piece of felt (6″x6″) out of wool and soapy water that is surface designed with lines and shapes. Yarn and thin strips of wool and other fibers will be used to decorate the felt with lines. Pre-felted wool and other fabrics will be used to decorate the felt with cut shapes that have clearly defined outlines. The finished project can be displayed as a wall hanging or used as a small trivet.
Facilitated by: Gail Maraman
Gail became interested in wool and felt making when she began caring for a small flock of sheep at Windy Crest Farm in Granville, Ohio. Using the wool from her own sheep, she learned how to design and create many different types of felt: traditional, watercolor, needle, and Nuno. Today, her finished felt pieces include wearable art accessories and items for home décor.
Registration, which is required, closes when the 7 participant capacity is reached or three days prior to the program. Please register by calling (614) 866-4302 or through our calendar, https://shepherdscorner.org/calendar. Clicking interested or attending through Facebook DOES NOT constitute registration.
Shepherd’s Corner Ecology Center is an outreach of The Dominican Sisters of Peace.
