Explore texture and learn how to wet felt, a process that has an element of sculpture to it. By using warm water and the simple force of your hands, this soothing and meditative process yields beautiful results that are both earthy and elegant. In this beginner's felt workshop, we’ll learn how to manipulate wool intentionally to make simple white sculptural vessels using basic resist techniques and sheeps' wool.
This class is appropriate for ages 18+.
This class will take place indoors at Rochester Brainery located at 176 Anderson Ave. F109, Rochester, NY 14607.
