Workshop decription from previous workshop.  The content of this year's felting workshop would be similar. 

 

1 - 6 pm followed by an potluck supper. 

"Learn how to make felt with a bicycle! (you can adapt this to your motorcycle, car, or camel.) We are going to show you how to prepare wool to be felted in large lengths. This type of felting is a rolling method used by the nomadic tribes of Mongolia to create covers for their yurts. . Stay on into the evening if you can and we can dance the night away on top of another batch of wool which will eventually turn into felt from the friction and heat our feet will create! This form of felting is called the rubbing method which originates from the Nordic culture. Our goal is to cover the interior stone wall in the Strawbale Studio ~ which will help insulate the lower 2 feet of the structure for the winter." 

 

You can stay overnight and on into Monday if you would like to continue with the process. 

 

$25 per person or sliding scale as needed.
