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 which can serve numerous purposes, such as rug, blanket or mat. This type of felting is a rolling method used by the nomadic tribes of Mongolia to create covers for their yurts.  Participants will take home a felted sample.  Pre-registration required.  Bring a bag lunch. 

 

Fee:    Pre-registration required.  Bring a bag lunch.
