Students will choose and lay out layers of unspun wool fibers ( with some additional fibers such as silk or wool curly locks for surface design) on both sides of a plastic "resist", saturate the fibers, and then spend time agitating the fibers through hand massage, rolling, and tossing, to achieve felting. They will stuff and shape their vessel and take it home to finish drying!
