We’ve designed an after-school craft class for youth in BARN’s outdoor classroom this fall! For two Thursday afternoons you will learn the basics of making your own felt creations from wool fibers.

The first week you will make a simple bead that can be turned into a keyring or a necklace, or possibly a mini-creature. As time allows you can start a more complex project making a little critter or small figure.

The second week will be focused on another technique called ‘wet felting’ where you will create a landscape or simple design that will be turned into a small wall hanging.

You will learn how to layer the wool ‘roving’ to create color and depth in your piece. Bundle up for this outdoor craft experience under the canopies in BARN’s backyard. We’ll have an outdoor heater and serve hot cocoa and hot cider for extra warmth! Masks and physical distancing will be required. The fees for this class have been subsidized by a grant from the City of Bainbridge Island in support of youth programs at BARN.
