Learn to make a felted bracelet with Marcie Ziskind

March 26 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Learn how to Wet Felt with merino roving using a resist to make a beautiful bracelet!

In this 3 hour class, you will learn how to create a bracelet you can wear home!

There are different types of felting – wet, needle and nuno.
Wet felting is the interlocking and compacting of wool fibres by using warm water, soap and
rubbing motions.
Needle felting is the process of interlocking wool fibres by stabbing it with a barbed needle. The
barbs catch the scales on the fibre and cause them to tangle and bind together.
Nuno felting is a technique developed by Polly Stirling – a fibre artist from Australia. The
technique bonds loose fibres, usually wool, into a sheer fabric such as silk gauze, creating a
lightweight felt.

(I will bring samples of each, tools which I use to make each type, and several types of animal
fiber that I use, and tools of the trade)

Member price – $50.00

Non-member price $75.00

All class materials are supplied. All we ask is that you bring a small bucket for water.
