Learn how to create a three-dimensional piece of felt such as a vessel or similar structure. You will learn the basic techniques of wet felting over a resist to create a seamless shape. During the first day you will learn how to make two different vessels using the same resist. During the second day, you will design your own resist to create a new form/shape. After the felt is done, you will learn other techniques such as stitching and/or beading to add embellishments to your vessels.
