(401) FULL ~ Fun and Fabulous Felt Flowers

In this fun hands-on class, we will transform Merino wool roving/top into beautiful felt flowers using just our hands, imagination, and a little soap and water in a process called wet felting. You may choose to wear your felt flower(s) to adorn a coat or hat by placing them on a pinback/brooch, or even on a headband to wear on your next special outing.
