Demonstration: Three-Dimensional Felt

Meeting Room A
Saturday, May 20, 10:00am to 11:00am

It’s a bit of magic to turn wool fleece into a free-standing vase or bowl.  Felter Carol Cohen will demonstrate the basic method of felting wool with a focus on creating three-dimensional objects and will bring a variety of vessels to show and talk about. This activity coincides with the Artful Felt at the Library exhibit by the Madison Area Felters’ Guild, April 5 to May 30. Artful Felt at the Library is made possible with support from the Friends of Sequoya.
