I demonstrated two forms of felting, needle felting and wet felting. Everyone had a wonderful time and went home with at least two pieces of felt.
Needle felting is done using dry fiber and a barbed needle. The needle penetrates the fiber and pulls them together binding them into a fabric
Wonderful finished products
WET FELTING - ROLLING
Rolling Felt is made using water, soap and agitation. In this case we will used elbow grease.
WET FELTING - SANDER
Wet felting using water, soap and a sander for the agitation. This is my favorite method
*A note from the Cattlemen's Country Expo Program Coordinator:
"Karen, We will be sending out the evaluations - but I know how your's turned out because I went home and read them the day of the event. So - If there is a scale of 1-10, with 10 being great, you are a 15 ! No kidding. Your class was fabulous and the folks appreciated everything. We need 2 of these classes next year" Joan R. D. WSU Livestock Advisor Program Coordinator
Watch for the Cattlemen's Country Expo on January 28, 2012. And join one of Karen's classes.
