JC09 Woodsy Forest Inspired Vessels with Dawn Edwards

We will create our wet-felted woodsy forest inspired vessels using the ‘resist’ method. This is a great introduction to 3D felting …watch as our flat felt pieces become three-dimensional. Proficiency Level: Suitable for all levels. We will be rolling our felt which requires some physical exertion. Please wear comfortable shoes and clothes. Bring to Class: Three old bath size towels. A plastic bucket to hold water. Sharp pointy scissors. Old pantyhose or an old t-shirt that can be snipped into strips to tie your felt bundles.

Class fee: $100.
Materials fee (payable to the instructor at the start of class): $25.

Thank you!

Another Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival has come and gone, and we could not have done without all of you – Festival goers, volunteers, Festival Committee members, shepherds, and participants in so many activities, competitions and demonstrations! It is amazing to see this come together with all categories of participants contributing to its success. We tried some new things this year, and had a little bad weather to deal with, and we appreciate everyone’s understanding, support, and good cheer. Thanks to everyone for participating in our 44th celebration of all things sheep & wool! We are already thinking about how to do even better next year!

In Peace,

Gwen Handler, Chairman, Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival

Lee Langstaff, President, Maryland Sheep Breeders Association
