Beginning Felting with Heidi Harris
West County Fiber Arts presents a class on the cycle of felting, starting with shearing the sheep to the end product of a felted piece that you will create with both needle felting and wet felting. Shearing, skirting, classing, picking, carding and felting, will be discussed, with an introduction to tools that are used in these processes. Each student will start by needle felting a small design, which they will then incorporate into a wet felted project, using wool that is locally grown in our fibershed, as well as naturally dyed wool. Enjoy a potluck lunch.
West County Fiber Arts is the studio of felt artist Heidi Harris, on a beautiful 1-acre property in rural Sonoma County, California. Classes will take place both indoors and in the garden. Instructor Heidi Harris is the founder of West County Fiber Arts.
