Fantastic Felt Berets: Seamless Felt Techniques with Sharon Costello
Make a fashion statement with a felt beret of your own design. Using traditional wet felting techniques (no knitting required) we will fashion a seamless beret of fine merino wool. Learn to make a custom 'resist' pattern, lay out fiber to create fine felt, transform those loose fibers into fabric, and full your beret to the perfect shape and fit. We will also learn to incorporate colorful designs, ruffles, 3-D flowers, and more on the surface of your beret. Materials fee: $15
