   LeeAnn Kroetsch “Wet Felting a Small Vessel”

Location:  Leeann’s home studio. The cost is $75.  A materials fee of $25 if you do not bring your own supplies.  The cost includes lunch.
LeeAnn will be teaching Wet Felting for small vessels.  She will provide instruction to guide you through the creation of a small vessel which can be used as a vase or wine cooler. During the class you will learn how to shape and sculpt two-dimensional fiber into a three-dimensional vessel. The technique presented will focus on surface design using color, texture and fiber layout.
The class is suitable for all levels of experience. For beginners you will develop a comfort level working with wool and other types of fibers for embellishment. For more experienced felters, you will further develop your skills using more advanced techniques with resists and surface shaping.

Materials that Leeann will provide during the class include:

  • Felting supplies consisting of: plastic sheeting, netting, mat for fulling, bubble wrap, ball sprayer, Greek olive oil soap
  • Yarn, ribbon, silk and other fibers for embellishment

Materials will be available for purchase ($25 Fee) or you will need to bring:

  • Wool Roving for vessel base– BFL, Alpaca, Corriedale recommended however Merino or other wool varieties are acceptable
  • If you will be purchasing supplies from LeeAnn, please discuss your color palette selection in advance with her so she can have what you need on hand.

  • Beach or large bath towel
