SpiderFelt: Functional Felt Art
What is felt? How is it made? Learn about the process and tradition while making several simple projects. This is a great introduction to an ancient tradition. Students will sample roving from different animals (sheep, goat, alpaca, angora rabbit) and different sheep breeds to understand how felts differ and what to buy when looking at various wools.
Materials provided include 2oz of wool roving, and a square of nylon fabric screen.
