Make a pair of slippers using basic wet felting resist techniques. Using merino wool and a resist, we’ll lay out wool and we tour work then gently roll, felt and full until we have a pair of warm and cozy wool felt slippers. Suggestions for finishing the slippers will be made, but students will need to let slippers dry before finishing.
