thursday class!

A few examples of what you might decide to do after you’ve taken this Thursday’s Class, Needle Felt Embellished note pad pouch. This class is an excellent introduction to embellishing items with needle felt, and I’ll have several examples with me to give you ideas for your post class exploration.

Come Stab Things into Existence with me Thursday at 712 Innovations!

Felting with a Resist

Have you wondered how to make felt vessels? Hats? bags? If so, then come explore felting with a resist and decide if you want to continue this exploration with a bigger project later.

We will use a simple resist to create a cup cozy (or simple vessel, tealight holder). You’ll get a feel for making even felt layers as you build the cozy over the resist. We will work with undyed wool as the primary felting material, but you will have access to a fiber bar with colors and textures to add a design to your project.

Wet Felt with a Resist:

Beginner level class, creating a cup cozy, learn to work with a resist

Saturday, January 9, 2016, 9am-Noon , at Potwin Presbyterian Church, Memorial Hall, CLASS MINIMUM 6, MAXIMUM 12

$30 per person, all supplies included

And-if you want to continue to explore felting with resists, then be sure to sign up for the February wet felting class where we will up the game and create a clutch bag or ereader pouch with a resist!

To register for the class, email your paypal address to me at annasplaceofholding@gmail.com and I’ll invoice you for the class fee-then show up on Saturday the 9th at 9am! I hope to see you at class!
