Felt Your Feet: Slippers or Boot Liners   

Warm up winter by making your own woolen slippers, slip-ons, cuffed or boot liners. Using the ancient no-knitting wet felting technique, you will make a cozy, warm pair of slippers or boot liners, any thickness you desire. The craft hasn’t changed in centuries; it's a simple, almost magical technique that transforms fluffy wool into a durable, thick material that is sculpted to the owner’s foot through patient, energetic agitation. Supposedly, the all-wool liners are warmer than the poly fiber mix that is so prevalent, but you’ll have to be the judge of that yourself. Students who choose to make slippers rather than boot liners can anticipate completing the project by early to mid afternoon on day two and can choose to make a small felted project, learn needle felting slipper and sock repair, or leave a bit early. Be prepared for physical exertion and being on your feet for this project. We will discuss options for adding soles. Leather soles will be available for purchase. Students ages 12+ are welcome to take this class. Materials fee: Approximately $35-60 payable to the instructor during class.
