Felted Vases, Vessels, and Bowls
Adult Enrichment / Art -
Learn the fascinating art of seamless 3D wet felting. Using wool and a variety of natural fibers, felt a small vessel to hold trinkets, chocolates or brighten up any shelf. Choose bright or natural colors, then “sculpt” your vessel into any shape from organic to contemporary. You can even make it reversible. We’ll be working with water so dress for mess and bring a lunch or snack, three hand towels, an old bath towel, sharp scissors, and a plastic bag to carry home wet items. Materials fee of $25, payable to the instructor, includes all fibers and supplies. Please note that physical stamina is needed for felting.
Leslie Granbeck is a feltmaker and instructor living in Minneapolis. She loves sharing her knowledge of fibers and their magical transformation into felt. She teaches traditional wet felting, nuno felting, and her favorite – three-dimensional seamless felting. Her classes are full of color, creativity and adventure. They also include a free workout as feltmaking is a “physical art”. When not teaching, you’ll find Leslie in her home studio working on new fiber projects. Visit www.fiberenvy.net.
