P305 - Your Perfect Felted Handbag

$ 150  


Learn to make your perfect felted handbag! In this wet felting class you will learn to use a plastic resist, add pockets, and create rope handles. All of these elements come from strategically layered fiber to create a seamless bag that requires no stitching.
We'll start the day by looking at my extensive library of Japanese felting books to get inspiration. I will help you combine these ideas with your own to craft the one-of-a-kind bag that you've always wanted.
Very satisfying!

Materials Fee $20 payable to instructor at beginning of class& List of what is supplied:
