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.
