Workshop: Hand-Felted Wool Purse

 Mabee Farm Historic Site and Schenectady County Historical Society

In this one-day workshop, participants will be introduced to the ancient, alchemical craft of felting wool. We’ll dive right into the joyful process of creating felted wool purses that blur the line between utility and wearable works of art. Spontaneity and playfulness will be encouraged as we experiment with a variety of surface embellishment techniques. Prepare to be delightfully surprised, as we mix unexpected materials and color combinations into our works of art to yield magically beautiful textures! Participants can expect to complete at least one wild and woolly felted purse. Instructor Jeannie Thomma.
