Wet Felted Beads for All Ages

  • Albina Library Portland, OR

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.
