Upcoming classes for textile and fibre arts enthusiasts at the TETT Centre for Creativity and Learning! Please come enjoy two fun-filled evenings with area friends and newcomers to the hand made felt and Indigo Dye esign-play arts.

Wet Felted Art Workshop with Bethany Garner

Thursday, October 24th 6-9pm
 Creating cloth with your hands is one of the most satisfying activities an artist can experience!
In this workshop, students will receive an individual kit of colourful wool roving and miscellaneous yarn fibres that will be used to create an original piece of wet felted art cloth. The process is hands-on, fun and EASY! Everyone will go home with a starting point for creating hand made felt on their own, experimenting and growing their skills as they PLAY!
The handmade felted cloth can be used for various projects including scarves, vessels, wall art, table accessories, a base for embroidery and more. Please bring a plastic container or bag to bring your project home. Ages 16+
 * Wet Felting Kit included.
* A comprehensive workshop handout is provided.
