Crafternoons: Wool Felting and Dying
Saturday, December 10, 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
$25/$20 members (includes museum admission)
Join fiber artist and Manager of Exhibitions, Donna Pagano for this hands-on woolen workshop. In this 2-hour class, we will go over the tools and techniques needed to create felt balls. Then we will string them together, add tassels, and finish it with a few drops of essential oil to create a diffuser for your car, home, or keychain! Participants will also try their hand at dying wool. The same materials and techniques can be used to create garlands, too! All tools and materials are provided, plus extra to take home.
