Wool Felting Program: Sheep Stones

Saturday, March 21st             1:30 – 3:30 pm
$20 program fee           *12 participant maximum*
Registration closed as program is at capacity. If you would like to be added to a wait-list, please contact Shepherd’s Corner at (614) 866-4302.

Learn how to make three dimensional felt shapes out of wool and soapy water. First we will shape the wool around a small stone, and make solid wool shapes that can be connected to the felt covered stone. The finished project will be a woolly sheep stone paperweight. Stitching can also be added for definition and detail. This is a beginner felting class.

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 decor.

Felted stones that are made in the shape of sheep.
