Art Workshop: Felting Fun for Beginners

Learn first-hand how to transform wool into felt! In this beginner friendly workshop, participants will create a variety of felted soaps to take home. What is felted soap? It’s a bar of soap with brilliant, colorful wool wrapped around it. The wool acts as a natural and gentle exfoliant and is anti-microbial. The covering also prolongs the life of the soap. The wool will continue to felt (shrink) around the bar of soap as you use it. We will begin with the basics, and then work our way up to designs such as stars, rainbows, and color gradients. You will learn the basics of wet-felting and receive an instruction sheet for how to make soaps at home.
