Open Felting Studio Collab Hours After your workshop, you are invited to take advantage of our free open studio hours to practice your new skills with the wonderful Charlton wool we have prepared for this 3-week community art collaboration. In exchange, we hope you'll donate a piece you make to the studio. A group of us will then assemble them into a community art collaboration! This community piece will be auctioned at our closing party to help support our programming, and a portion will go to the local 4H chapter, where young people are learning the agricultural skills that will help ensure another generation of amazing local resources for us all to create with.
