Curious about wet felting? Join us for this 3-hour "Try it!" class in the BARN Fiber Studio where we’ll wet-felt around a playground ball. Make a hat or a cute pouch by wrapping colored roving (un-spun wool) around your ball, covering it all in pantyhose, and spritzing it with hot, sudsy water. Bounce the ball for a few minutes, and then—it’s almost like magic!—deflate the ball to discover what you’ve made. At home you can add details with embroidery or needle felting, or just enjoy it as-is.
This is a fun and easy way to give wet-felting a try!
BARN will provide roving, pantyhose, and a playground ball.
You bring a pair of dishwashing gloves and a sense of fun.
