Wool craft is a primal and intuitive relationship practiced for its utility, artistry, and necessity. In this hands-on workshop, we will explore both the historical and contemporary contexts of fiber through the lens of wet felting. Wet felting is a simple, accessible, and physical process used to bind wool fibers together to create clothing, rugs, blankets, and tapestries. The process will encourage students to learn through their bodies and to consider the ecology of interacting with wool. 

Wet felting can be a physically strenuous task, though the instructor can provide modifications to the process to make it accessible for a range of abilities. Please reach out if you have questions or concerns about this. All materials and tools will be provided. Students are asked to bring a bath-sized towel. 

To register, please email hanigoskytaylor@gmail.com. Include any questions and any previous experience working with fiber. Deadline to register is March 25. To pay the instruction and materials fee, students can send the whole amount through Paypal using the above email address, or can bring a check to class.
