Prefelt Play - Flowers Workshop

  • PenFelt Studio Sunnyside Neighborhood Portland, OR (map)

Prefelts are commercially produced needle-punched wool fabric. The loose wool fabric feels a bit like flannel. Prefelt fabric can be cut and needle felted into 3-D forms very organically. After building loose shapes with the felting needle, we'll carefully wet felt the prefelt pieces until hard and smooth. After wet felting, the tightly felted sculptures hold their shape and are raucously three-dimensional.

Playing with prefelts is really fun and meditative. Come play for a day with prefelts... the resulting flower-inspired forms could be pinned on a jacket alone or combined with other elements into wall-hangings, vessels or other fiber sculpture.

This workshop is held at PenFelt Studio.
$120, all materials included. To register, email LeBrie.
