Monday Make Night: Easy Wet Felt Balls

Jun 13, 2022 6:30PM—8:30PM

Save your fiber scraps to create beautiful felted balls! Borrowing from the Temari tradition, we’ll wrap our scraps tightly in yarn to form a firm ball. Then, we’ll add colorful wool fibers and use felting needles to secure the fibers before wet felting our balls with soap and warm water. Magically, the fibers will meld to create colorful balls which you can use for home decor, cat toys, or …  It’s easy. It’s fast. It’s fun!

Instructor: Katrina Stone has been a fiber fanatic since childhood. She creates award-winning, nature-inspired works that incorporate the fiber techniques she loves – felting, sewing, beading, and knotting (macrame). Katrina is the current president of the Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance and makes her home in Gwinnett County with her husband and their fun-loving Boston Terriers.
