Known since Neolithic times, hand felted wool can form intriguingly soft and complex sculptural shapes.

Over two days, Anita will teach you fundamental felting techniques, how to make seamless three-dimensional forms using resists, to layer resists, and to model solid felted shapes in your hand using agitation and soapy water. Explore the wonderful realm of felted sculpture.
