This technique for building, felting, and pulling out a wet felted hat will give you a fashionable brimmed hat with extra style and pizzazz. We will form the wet hats over traditional hat blocks to pull the crowns and brims into shape. The special layout and the pulling of the felted hat results in a brim with life and styling options.
Class Limit: 16 Class Level: Advanced Beginner to experienced: Some wet felting with loose fibers required.
Participants Should Bring: An old towel for soaking up soapy water, a large cellulose sponge, water to drink. Optional: dishwashing gloves if you do not like having your hands in soapy water; any fibers or yarns of your own that you might want to incorporate in your project.
Special instructions for participants Be prepared for some work! We will roll the loose fibers quite hard to create the firm felt needed for a hat with torque. Contact Kelly directly with any questions at 616-374-7176 or email@example.com or www.teameffortartisans.com
