In this class we’ll learn the basics of wet felting and make a simple, seamless small bowl or vessel by transforming wispy wool roving into a durable structure using water, soap, and a bit of agitation. Along the way, we’ll marvel at the many metaphors of how things come into being, how friction helps new forms emerge, and how patience is a practice where transformation is concerned. Throughout the day, we’ll take a few breaks from felting and bring our attention to the page, exploring some guided prompts and meditations. By the end of the day, you’ll have a finished bowl, and perhaps a bit of writing that just might surprise you.
No previous experience with felting or free writing necessary.
Please bring 2 large, old towels, an apron and/or wear clothes you don’t mind getting a bit wet, journal, and pen for writing. Please also bring a lunch (we'll take an hour long break mid-day).
