It is both magical and easy to use unspun wool to fashion a 3-dimensional purse, pouch or other vessel around a flat form that “resists” felting and shrinking! We’ll play with a mountainous rainbow of fluff and sparkle to make unique, small bowls—and discuss how these same techniques can be used to develop into hats, handbags, and vases
Materials SuppliedMaterials fee to be paid to the instructor at time of class: $10 - which includes fiber needed to complete your project.

She teaches spinning, knitting, felting and crochet in many outlets across the eastern seaboard, including a 13-year-long program at the library where she works. Marcia (who is “Undeniably Loopy!”) has been addicted to turning fluff into stuff ever since sneaking her 9-year-old daughter’s spindle and fiber after their first class together, two decades ago!
