Notes about allowing youth under 18: Youth okay! Parents need to be sure the youth is able to do the work and be prepared to stay during class. Legal guardian must accompany youth under 14. Separate registrations required if you both wish to do your own project, one registration is fine if you plan on working on one project together.

Class Description: Wool is the most amazing fiber!  Using only water and soap processing, it can be spun into yarn for knitting or the roving can be used for felting. In this class we will use roving and hot soapy water and add friction to create felt boots. This is the wet felting method using a resist.
These boots are made to fit perfectly to your own feet. We will put a sole on them if you want to use them outside. They are great for winter use inside and outside.

Please bring $35 at the start of class to pay the instructor for materials.
