#401: Little Capsules and Pods

by Ricarda AƟmann

Thu, Jun 21 – Fri, Jun 22 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Difficulty: INTERMEDIATE

Seminar Fee: $345

In this workshop participants will create a series of little, but expressive and unique objects. Only by laying out the wool in a special way and using selfmade prefelts, the miniatures receive an extraordinary shape and texture without a multilayered template. The technique shown can be transferred into further objects in optional sizes, the results can be used as decoration objects or gifts as well as jewelry pieces like pendants.

A $0 material fee will be collected at the seminar. Please bring this amount with you to the event.

  • Merino wool superfine (16-19 micron)
