Using the ancient and calming process of felt making, we will use wool, warm soapy water and hands to create a colorful bag that can be carried or worn. No sewing is required and no experience necessary.

Instructor Paula Scott-Frantz has taught felt making for over a decade and finds the transformation of the natural materials through the hands of each participant to be one of the most healing and rewarding journeys anyone can experience.
