Last Thursday Dorothy got down and wet in the Courtyard teaching five enthusiastic felter’s how to turn fibre into a stand-up bowl.
There was water soap and fibre involved – so it was all in good clean fun!
The response from students and watchers was very enthusiastic – maybe we should do it again this summer!?
We still have a few of the felted vessel kits left in a good assortment of colours and lots of rovings to make plenty of extra bowls once you know how!
There is a lot of physical manipulation and kneading of the fibre – great way to build those shoulders up!
The results from the day – outstanding!
