Learn a New Craft as Winter Winds Down
Felt making is one of the most ancient ways to create fabric. The oldest archaeological finds containing evidence of the use of felt are in Turkey. Wall paintings that date from 6500 to 3000 B.C. have been found. In many countries, felt is still very much in use, particularly in harsh climates, and artisans in Russia and Eastern Europe are highly skilled in the craft.
On Wednesday, March 2, Elena Rosenberg, of Makers-on-Hudson Elena Rosenberg Wearable Fiber Art, will be teaching a class in wet felting, a craft that employs this ancient skill to produce stunning results.
The hands-on class will be taught at the Pelham Art Center Westchester County, N.Y. on Wednesday, March 2 from 10 AM - 1 PM. It's open to adults and beginners are welcome.
Time to shake off those Winter Blues, have fun, and discover the beginning of a new skill.
