In this workshop create and complete a wearable piece of art, a felted clutch purse, using Merino wool and hand dyed Margilan silk. No sewing involved! Learn how to wet felt wool fiber and silk with the use of a resist. Turn fibers into strong fabric using modernized ancient felting techniques. Learn about shrinkage, how to design a template, and how to insure your felt is well felted. Choose your own colors of wool and silks. If you choose to purchase the magnetic clasp there will be an additional $2 cost paid to the instructors in addition to the material fee. Bring a snack or light lunch. We can refrigerate if necessary.
