Felted Botanical Vessel

I just wet-felted and finished another round, botanical-themed bowl in preparation for the 2-day Vessels & Votives Workshop which I'll be conducting here at the Grand Canyon in October. With a finished size of 10.5" (h) x 14.5" (diam.), this smaller format seems more manageable for a beginner-intemerdiate level class. Working with pre-felts can be challenging for those who've never felted before, but with so many other surface design options available, I know class participants will have no problem decorating their vessels. If you are interested in a weekend immersion class where you'll explore felting both small- and large-sized vessels using resists, as well as learn to dye wool roving with acid dyes, then sign up now! Class size is limited to just 12 participants. Come learn in one of the world's most beautiful wild classrooms!
