Felting DEMO!

SAT / JAN 29 / 1-3pm

Come learn ancient techniques for transforming raw wool into modern textiles. Felt's primitive and organic process lends itself to endless possibilities and its tactile appeal and versatility make it the perfect home textile. Felt artist Ashley Helvey will demonstrate three different wet-felting techniques ranging from 2D to 3D.

And, if you are a follower of her INCREDIBLE taste-making blogs, here's your chance to meet her in-person!
