Felt for the Home: Silk and Felt Table Runners

Gather a group, add a little water, some wool, and the joy of sharing stories and what do you make? Felt! In this class we are going to focus on working with silk and wool together to make a durable, yet flexible piece of fabric that can be a lovely table runner for your home. We will begin by working on our designs and creating templates, then learn how to make pre-felt and finally put it all together into a beautiful runner.  This class is great for both the beginner looking for an introduction into working with silk and wool, and also for the more advanced student looking to push their design capabilities with wool.

Mary's paternal grandmother loved all things fiber, except felt- so in good, stubborn fashion she found her way to felt-making and hasn't looked back.  Her love of felt has since taken her to Kyrgyzstan where she lived with a family for the winter of 2013 learning both the culture and skills that surround this incredible art.  Having grown up without ever learning to spin, weave, cord, sew, or otherwise attempt to cajole the fibers of this world (or anything else for that matter) into beautiful forms, she is now dedicated to teaching others to wake up this capacity in their hands.  She is especially interested in creating beautiful felt for everyday living and continues to work and teach classes from her home studio in Saginaw, MN.
