From the practical to the whimsical, we've got the class for you!

 
 

BASKETRY

.
YARN BASKET
1 Day $75
Monday, September 10, 9:30am–4:00pm
Margaret Tullis, instructor
This ribbed basket without a handle is perfect for storing a yarn project. This class includes a demonstration and discussion of fiber reactive dyes. ALL LEVELS WELCOME.

TRI-AXIAL PLY-SPLIT BASKET
1 Day $75
Friday, September 28, 10am–4:30pm
Sally Kuhn, instructor
Come learn to make a ply-split basket using Danish cord with a tri-axial start and POThold sides. ALL LEVELS WELCOME.

FELTING

ALL FIBERS ARE PROVIDED FOR THE FELTING CLASSES. PLEASE BRING A COUPLE OF OLD TOWELS FOR THE WET FELTING CLASSES.

FELT FOR FEET—TALL BOOTS
1 Session $80
Sunday, October 28, 9:30am–4:30pm
Margaret Tullis, instructor
These boots make great slippers, but you can add soles for a more durable pair. As with the short version, you form them right on your own feet. Decorating and shaping possibilities abound, trouble shooting and repair skills included. It’s best if you take another “wet felt with resist” class first (slippers, hat). Come with elbow grease and an old towel.

FELT SURFACES—LAYERS AND TEXTURES
2 Sessions $110
Sunday, November 11 & 18, 9am–3pm
Margaret Tullis, instructor
Layering lightweight fabric with fine wisps of wool roving produces interesting textural effects. You could make a lightweight Nuno scarf. Or you could play with the same differential shrinkage for surface design on a thicker cloth. Compare felt you make with wool from different breeds of sheep along with a variety of fabrics. See the effects of even non-felting fibers like silk. We’ll build and cut through layers, try inclusions and inlays…stitchery and needling too. The emphasis will be on usable sampling, problem solving and finishing techniques.

FELT A HAT
1 Session $80
Sunday, December 9, 9:30am–4:30pm
Margaret Tullis, instructor
You will start with loose fleece and end up with a felt hat. You will have lots of choices of colors and shapes for your hat. We supply the tools and materials; you supply an old towel and some elbow grease.

FELTED FLOWERS
1 Session $80
Monday, December 10, 9:30am–4:30pm
Margaret Tullis, Instructor
Wet felting is a fun way to make soft fiber flowers and foliage. We’ll layer wool with silk and fabrics and work with resists and prefelt. Learn to blend your own colors. Realistic or fantasy, these will look good any time of year.
