Felt Folk, Hollow Skin Method-- 12 hrs.

4 Sessions/ 2 Days

This 2-day workshop might be shorter as soon as my workbook on the topic is published. If participants are willing to be shoved along, we could get the figures mostly done in a day...
We'll be making wool into felted body parts which are stuffed and assembled into myriad beings-- Toddler, Woman, Mermaid, Satyr, Troll, or a sofa-cushion size Venus of Woolendorf.

Instructor will discuss the design, construction and engineering of both barenaked and clothed bodies.

PARTICIPANT BRINGS:
*about 1/2 pound wool that felts well,
in any state from raw to carded
*a plastic bag from the produce dept.
*the favorite pair of scissors
*various dyed wool & yarn bits
*washed woolly locks for hair
*any old washed wool for stuffing-
tease or card this before the workshop, please.
*strong crewel yarn for sewing assembly
*a small assortment of needles
*a cake of any soap
*a little pitcher for hot felting water
*a soft sponge or piece of foam about 6x6x3" for your work surface
*an old towel (borrow one from your dog)
