Crafts & Drafts: Needle Felted Wool Ornaments with Erin Carlson
December 1 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Crafts & Drafts Workshop
Date: December 1, 2023
Description: Join local fiber artist Erin Carlson of Red Cottage Fiber Studio in crafting a sturdy 2-dimensional woolen ornament with the help of your favorite cookie cutter! Students will learn about the wonderful properties of wool which allow it to felt into lovely solid forms and experiment with surface decoration to bring their ornament to life. No experience necessary and beginners welcome.
Materials: Students are encouraged to bring their own cookie cutter to work with, but a limited number of cookie cutters will be on hand for use. Please note that cookie cutters should be completely open like the horse, not like the bell (see photo below). All other materials will be provided.
