Fine Felting Workshop Next Saturday, June 9th




We are very fortunate to have the opportunity for you to learn art of Fine Felting. In this method, you learn how to create and shape fabric using unspun Colored Roving. Create scarves, hatbands, table runners, vests, jackets and purses. You are limited only by your imagination


On Saturday, June 9, from 11am-2pm, Drin Welker and Carol Culp will teach FINE FELTING for beginners. Students will each go home with a fine felted scarf they have created. Drin and Carol are members of the Artisans’ Co-op in Bodega and have been creating felted items for about ten years.

Due to popular demand of the class Drin and Carol have opened up a second class on Saturday June 9th from 3-6pm. Call us at 916.714.7719 to preregister.
