Join us at the Cowee Valley Quilt and Fiber Celebration in Franklin, NC to learn wet felting techniques with Ruth Duckworth!
Whimsical Felted Flowers
An Introduction to Wet Felting
Come join us as we explore the art of wet felting with multicolored dyed wool. Learn how to create felted flower masterpieces inspired by your favorite blooms. You can make a flower into a pin or use it to embellish a hat or scarf or bag. We will start off getting a feel for the felting process by first making a bookmark.
Please bring an old towel. All other supplies will be provided.
$10 supply fee for wool (included in registration fee.)
