If you have been thinking about getting your hands wet and giving felt-making a try, this is the perfect opportunity! In this playful class you’ll understand the felting process, you’ll learn how to lay down the wool with the shingling technique, and learn how blend different colors of wool and different fibers while working on a hollow shape. We’ll introduce various yarns and fibers to create rich surfaces, and add some silk fabric pieces to explore the lamination felt technique. We will shape the final piece in 3D. After taking this class you’ll have an understanding of how to felt any other hollow shapes: purses, hats, mittens or slippers.

Skill level: beginner to intermediate

What to Bring: Notebook, pen/pencil for notes, 2 hand towels, 1x1’ rug or foam drawer liner (with small holes), 1x1’ cotton sheet (old cloth), 1 olive or coconut oil soap bar in a container, 1 quart bowl for water, Felting sprinkler (optional), Apron (optional), decorative yarns and loose woven fabric pieces (optional)

Other Information: A materials fee of $6 is included with registration. Materials fee will cover the costs for hand dyed super fine merino wool and silk fibers and template materials.

Cost: $91 for members, $101 for general admission

Due to the intimate setting for this on-site class, the National Nordic Museum is requiring that all class participants be vaccinated against COVID-19. Proof of vaccination may include CDC Vaccination Card (or photo), documentation from a health care provider, or state immunization system record.
