Three Dimensional Wet Felting Class at Manatee Village

Explore the craft of 3-Dimensional Wet Felting at Manatee Village Historical Park, 1404 Manatee Avenue East, on Saturday, February 12, 2011 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Vicki Bennett, who teaches Felting classes at the Morean Art Center in St. Petersburg, will instruct on shaping fibers - wool, silk, soy, bamboo - into 3 dimensional forms: vessels, containers, bags, wearable art, and sculptural shapes. The possibilities are endless. Using resists, found forms and soap, participants will be able to bend and shape raw fibers to their own designs.

Materials fee is $45.00 and includes all fibers and supplies. Bring a dishpan, a couple sponges, a towel and an apron or top you don't mind getting wet. Reservations are required by February 7, at 4:00 PM. Call 749-7165 to register or for more information.
