Wet felting a 3D object usually involves placing a flat pliable piece of plastic known as a resist between two layers of wool to keep them from bonding together. In this class, though, you’ll use an inflatable ball (a 3-D resist!) to create a stunning, seamless bowl with structure and stability. Say goodbye to irregularly-shaped bowls and hello to a continuously accessible resist surface that enables exciting embellishment possibilities. You’ll begin your bowl with the end in mind and start with your embellishment fibers. Then, you’ll add wool fibers and use special felting techniques to felt “in the round”. And, finally, you’ll deflate and remove the ball and turn your piece inside out for final felting and the big reveal! This 3D felting method is fun, unique, and less physically demanding than other wet felting techniques. Add in Katrina’s helpful tips and tricks and we foresee many hand-felted bowls, hats, and bags in your future!
