Learn how to make three dimensional felt flowers out of wool and soapy water. The leaves, petals, stamen, and pistil are constructed from dry wool and then transformed into a blooming flower using the wet felting technique. The finished flower can be worn as a brooch or used as a decoration for hats, handbags or gifts. Finished the flowers will weight around .5 oz. be about 4” x 4”.

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.

Masks are optional.
