Felting Classes

Textile handicrafts play an important part of our cultural history in the High Country. Handmade felt is made by layering animal fibers, adding warm, slightly soapy water and friction (rubbing and rolling, sometimes throwing) to tangle and bind the fibers together to make fabric.  

Felt making involves working on tables at counter height standing most of the time, so wearing comfortable shoes and clothes is recommended.  A waterproof apron if concerned about getting clothes damp.


PLEASE NOTE: Most classes meet over multiple weeks. Registration for each class is open until the class fills or until 1 week before the class begins, whichever comes first. If you miss the registration for this semester we hope you will consider taking this class the next time it is offered. Please contact Jack Chambers at chambersje@ppstate.edu to be added to the mailing list if you would like to be notified when new classes are offered.
