Holiday Feltmaking

In this class, students will experiment with two types of felting; needle felting and wet felting. For the first project, they will wet felt a bar of soap.  The soap is covered with a layer of felt which they will decorate with colorful pieces of wool.  The finished soap serves as both soap and washcloth and the felted layer continues to shrink as the soap is used. Students will also be able to needle felt at least one holiday ornament using colors and shapes of their choice.  These items make great gifts or they can be kept and used for their own holiday decorations.

Instructor’s name
Miriam Young - Using the traditional crafts of felting, knitting, crocheting, macrame, and embroidery, I create fiber art.  My most recent work involves wet felting and nuno felting.  Felting is transformation.  Thin, fragile wool roving is transformed into strong and vibrant felt by my hands, soap, water and agitation.  The colors, textures, thickness of the product, and ultimate shape of the felt are determined by me and the techniques that I use to create it.  I feel that I am creating something at a very fundamental level when I am felting.
