In this 2-hour workshop, led by local artist Valerie French, you will quickly learn some basic techniques, to create a 6” X 6” work of felted art. We will begin with wool roving, and practice dying, wet-felting, needle felting and embellishing.

10” rug canvas squares
hand towels
reusable kitchen gloves
scissors
