Pre-Felt Techniques via ZOOM

Ever wanted to know how felters make those crisp lines and corners in a felt design?  In this course, you will learn how to do just that! This course will teach you the difference between machine-made and handmade pre felts, how to make your own pre felts, and how to use your pre felts in your felting projects. Come learn how to make striking design effects and expand your felting skill repertoire. The kit is included in the class fee and can be picked up at the shop or shipped.
Did you see this class too late to get supplies? Take the class anyway and pick up or have the supplies sent to you the day after the class.

Supply List:

  1. A space (approximately 18x18 inch) like your kitchen counter or a card table covered in plastic (an old shower curtain, painter’s plastic or plastic picnic tablecloth will work). Additional space for your supplies and computer/tablet. If you want to ensure you do not get water on the floor, a cookie tray with a lip works well.
