Wool felt is an incredibly durable, beautiful, and useful fabric, and modern felted objects can be considered both art and craft.Felt was an integral part of the everyday life of nomadic herding cultures, and examples of felted objects date back hundreds of years.

In this full-day workshop, we will learn the basic techniques of wet felting, and we will learn about new felting techniques that have evolved. Partici-
