Create your very own Felted Sculptural Bowl made from sheep wool and other sustainable fibers. Experience the feel of the natural fibers while you create a colorful and beautiful fabric item for your home. The method we will be following is called “wet felting”. We will overlap layers of wool, add soap and water, and then rub and roll the piece until it becomes fabric or “felted”. You don’t have to have a lot of hand strength for this class, but you will be using your hands to place layers of wool down and then rub and roll it to completion. As an added benefit, you will leave this class with the knowledge of how to replicate this process at home.
You will walk away with a finished Fiber Sculpture to beautify your home or to gift
You will learn a craft that you can repeat at home with minimal investment
You will be participating in a sustainable art form
You will have tactile play with fiber

Tall Cactus Studio
Lucy Huckery is the fiber artist behind Tall Cactus Studio www.tallcactusstudio.com. She makes eco-printed and felted fiber art creations that are both beautiful and functional. Three years ago, she discovered eco printing (botanical contact printing) and began experimenting on paper using leaves, bark, flowers, and seeds she found in nature. When she tried bundling these same botanicals on fabric, a world of possibilities opened up, and she decided to tailor her craft to focus on fiber art. Today, Lucy transforms eco printed fabric and handmade felt into functional items such as trivets, coasters, placemats, purses, table runners, glasses cases, pin cushions and scarves.
