Creative Play: Felting with a Beach Ball
June 1, 2011

Date and time

Felt around a ballThursday, June 1, 2011
6–9 p.m.

Description

Learn a fun and contemporary approach to an ancient fiber medium. Wrap a beach ball with luscious and colorful merino wool and cover it with pantyhose. Add soap and water, and bounce: the wool becomes a felted sphere. The sphere can then become a bag or purse or vessel, perhaps even a hat.

With vibrant and interesting textures to play with, felting is a rich creative experience for the senses. Bring an old towel, a plastic bag, and your curiosity. All other materials are included in the registration fee. No experience necessary.
