Felted Soap Workshop with Michelle Martin of Purple Moon Fibers
Adults cost: $30
Felted soap? Yes, felted soap. In this class we will be taking a bar of our favorite soap and turning it into a beautiful and functional work of art. These make great gifts, or just look great being used in your home. We will wrap the soap in wool roving, and gently felt the wool around the soap, creating a colorful wool felt casing. The felt will shrink along with the soap inside, and will also make the bar last longer. It makes a sort of a loofa, helping you gently scrub your skin and best of all wool is naturally anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, so it will stay fresh.
This is a wonderfully easy introduction to the process of wet felting.
Students must bring a towel, bar of soap and a bowl wide and deep enough to submerge the soap. All other materials provided.
