Felted Vessels Workshop

Learn how you can sculpt hollow forms using wet felting techniques from contemporary fiber artist, Mallory Zondag. During this four hour workshop. You will learn all about the wet felting process, how to work with wool roving, hot water and soap to felt your own fabric and how to sculpt a hollow three dimensional object such as a vase, bowl or basket from wool.

The technique you learn can be applied to the making of hats, slippers, jackets and more! All materials included. Students will leave with their finished projects.

Some of the materials in this workshop will be sourced right from our local Charlton sheep and processed in Main Street Studio. We can’t wait to see what everyone will create!
