Come and create a beautiful wet-felted forest floor inspired vessel. We will explore methods of creating great visual interest through a fabulous, highly textured surface. We will form our vessels using a flat resist. Felting with a resist will produce a seamless, hollow shape. Watch as our flat felt pieces become three-dimensional…and woodsy.

What a lovely gift and perfect for the season!
“Just finished making this bowl for the lovely lady who has been selling my silly pumpkins in her wonderful gallery the last 4 weeks. I have made 18 and sold 12, and she is not taking one penny for herself. She deserves so much more for her generosity, but I hope she will be happy with this little token of my gratitude.”
Becky Sullivan-Ollinger, Washington
What a perfect seasonal accent!
“My Autumn sky bowl. I used my mc-1 Orange, foliage and yellow and majestic blue. Wet felted with dry felted purple spiral needle detail, leaf and acorn.”

Start small and learn with simple projects :O)
For this little project we used Living Felt MC-1 Felting Batts, Olive Oil Soap, Bamboo Mat, Felting Mesh, and a Rigid Mat.
We’ve been inspired by dolls, wall hangings, gnomes and pups, but here’s an interesting concept to brighten your home. Vessels. Felted bowls and tableware accents from Donna Brau.
Maybe some fresh picked flowers or whimsical fruits? Or the perfect compliment to your dinner party setting?
