FL04 Felt Bird Pod with Dawn Edwards

Thursday, May 3, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Shed #5 at Howard County Farm Heritage Museum

Come and enjoy a day of wet-felting as we create a felt bird pod that is sure to be a hit with your feathered friends. This birdhouse will be made of naturally water-repellent Bergschaf wool. Small birds, such as wrens, nuthatches, and chickadees will use the pods for shelter and nesting. Proficiency Level: Suitable for all. Bring to Class: 2-3 bath-sized towels; bubble wrap (2′ wide x 6′ long); soap; a plastic bucket or pail; sharp, pointy scissors, old pantyhose or t-shirt that can be cut up; ball brause or laundry-sprinkler bottle (instructor will have several to share); PVC pipe or pool noodle (pool noodle may be cut in half, as that is all you will need); bed risers to raise table to a comfortable working height (optional).
Class Fee: $100. Materials Fee: $25.
