7079 Easy ArtfeltÂ® Workshop: Learn the Basics in a Day!
Artfelt, a felting method based on a special paper, is the newest and most rapidly growing method of felting in the marketplace. But what exactly is it, and how is it done? One of the best ways to learn Artfelt is through trial and error. This Artfelt workshop is for those who would like to learn all there is to know about Artfelt in one day. The first few hours will be an interactive tutorial and demonstration on the different way the Artfelt method can be used with many samples to examine. The remaining time will be used to make small samples using these different methods. Students will be encouraged to experiment with different layering techniques, various roving, the inclusion of locks, beads, and ribbons. Although not one particular project will be made, through the creation of these small samples, students will go home knowing the many uses of the Artfelt paper and will be ready to get creative with it on their own.
Materials fee: $20 includes all necessary supplies.

ArtfeltÂ® is the newest method of felting that combines the best attributes of needle felting, wet felting and fulling. Using this method, a new felter can save hours in labor and create detailed designs that normally only an experienced felter could achieve. In this class you will learn the basics of the artfeltÂ® method from start to finish and actually create a lined purse/pouch during class. Some finishing may need to be done at home. Class is suitable for felters of all levels, including first time felters.
Materials fee: $15 all supplies except purse handle.
