Hand Felted Slippers @ OFFF - FULL

  • Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival 694 E 4th Avenue Canby, OR 97013 (map)

Make yourself a pair of toasty warm hand felted slippers!

In this wet felting class we’ll start by making a pattern with a plastic resist. You’ll learn how to calculate for shrinkage to make a pair of slippers that really fits. Then you’ll learn how to lay out the fiber in strategic layers and felt it into fabric using hot water and soap. Finally we’ll full (shrink) the slippers down to size and block them for a professional finish.

Students will come away with one completed pair of slippers and the know-how to make more for any sized foot. This technique does not require a shoe last so you really can do it at home without extra equipment. At the end of the class students will be given access to LeBrie’s step-by-step video on how to make felted slippers so you can populate the world with slippers.

This class is best for those with some felting experience or scrappy beginners. Felting is physical and requires some stamina and upper arm strength.
