Master Class with Dawn Edwards



So Many Hats and Only One Head

Come learn the basics of 3D felting, or expand your knowledge, as we create beautiful felt or nuno-felt hats using Merino wool roving and gorgeous silk Sari fabrics. You’ll love all of the artistic possibilities, with functionality as an added bonus. We will create our hats over a template (flat resist), using wet-felting techniques. Hats will then be blocked. I will bring along a number of patterns from which to choose. Come prepared to have fun.
