Q & A
What is Wet Felting?Wet felting is a process used to make wool and other animal fibers into the dense fabric known as felt. The process involves the application of warm, soapy water, which causes layers of fleece placed at 90 degree angles to one another to hook together into a single piece of fabric.
Do I need experience to take this workshop? No. Therese will walk you through the wonderful fun and relaxing art making process.
I have an old wool sweater, may I bring it? SURE! Therese will be supplying all of the materials, but you're welcome to bring a wool item to incorporate into your work.
