Learn the ancient craft of feltmaking by making beads using only raw wool and hot soapy water. You will felt a "cane" of layered wool that will be cut into slices of millefiori-style beads. In this workshop, you'll get to make a nice collection of beads that can be strung into bracelets, necklaces and garlands, or used as buttons. Because the wool beads must dry overnight before being strung into jewelry, this class covers just bead-making, not jewelry creation.

Freezer Paper Stencils for Teens

to Jul 27

Freezer Paper Stencils for Teens

  • Eugene Public Libraries (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Freezer paper is a widely available material with miraculous properties. We’ll cut stencils out of freezer paper, exploring the concept of positive and negative space. Then we’ll fuse the stencils to fabric using an iron on a low setting, and apply fabric paint. When the freezer paper is removed, a crisp, one-of-a-kind image appears. All of the materials we’ll use are readily available, and teens will leave the class armed with the skills to do this project on their own at home.

I'll be doing this program at all three Eugene branch libraries on July 26th & 27th. Learn specific location and time info here.
