Starting in the third week of September, a new series of felting classes will be starting at Space to Create, an art studio in Ballard.
The first two classes are introductions to the method, perfect for anyone interested in learning how to wet felt, which is distinct from the other two more popular versions of felting: needlefelting with a barbed needle or fulling a piece of knit fabric.
Full class descriptions are listed on the Events page. Registration can be done by phone or email with Space to Create: 206.784.0401, firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a discount for students who register for the full six-class series.
While it is not necessary to enroll in all six workshops, it is a great way to try a broad variety of felting techniques and determine whether this is an art you would like to explore further. Three women signed up for the series when I taught it last spring. It was wonderful to work with them each week, to see their personal style expressed in each project we tackled. We had so much fun felting together that we planned a weekend retreat in June. Watch for that story in an upcoming post.
