Course Overview

It may never have occurred to you, but puppets and oven mitts are very closely related. They are both made of colorful wool, both are wet felted around a resist, and with a little imagination, they both can talk. Is an oven mitt just a shy puppet or is a puppet an oven mitt with personality and pizazz? You make the call as you choose which one you would like to make, learning the basic skill of wet felting a three dimensional piece. This class is a good introduction to felting and may lead you to making hats, mittens, slippers, and more. Come have fun and enjoy what everyone in the class creates!
