March Felting Classes

The next two felting classes will begin soon:


Felting 101 – Beads, Ropes and Flat Felt
Wednesday, March 19th, 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Cost: $30 plus $10 materials fee
Class size is limited to 10 students.
A hands-on introduction to basic wetfelting techniques. Topics covered include creating felt beads, ropes and flat felt. Each of these building blocks will be used in subsequent classes to create more complex constructions. Students will complete two projects during the class time such as a three-tier flower brooch, a felt box or a neck cozy. Materials provided include 3 oz. of wool roving, bubble wrap, and a square nylon fabric screen.


Date: Wednesday, March 26th, 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Cost: $30 plus $10 materials fee
Class size is limited to 10 students.
Students in this class will learn the technique of Nunofelting, which pairs merino wool with loosely woven fabrics such as cotton gauze or silk charmeuse resulting in a fabric that is both fine and flexible. Depending on the manner in which the wool is laid out, the fabric will constrict, pucker, crinkle or wave; finished products range from ruffled scarves to translucent window coverings. Students will test various methods for laying out wool on strips of silk, experimenting with form, shape and fabric. Prerequisite: Felting 101 or equivalent experience.

Both classes are taught at Venue, 5408 22nd Ave NW, between Ballard Ave and Market. Register by phone: 206-789-3335.

    I would really like to know why my husband gets home at 7. Is this not normal? The classes sound fab!

    Those classes sound great! You’re covering a lot of material in the two hours alloted to each class; your students will get a lot out of each.
