Workshop: Creative Play: Felting with a Beach Ball


Learn a fun and contemporary approach to an ancient fiber medium. Wrap a beach ball with luscious and colorful merino wool and cover it with pantyhose. Add soap and water and bounce. The wool becomes a felted sphere. The sphere can then become a bag or purse or vessel, perhaps even a hat. With vibrant and interesting textures to play with, felting is a rich creative experience for the senses. Bring an old towel, a plastic bag and plenty of curiosity. All other materials are included in the registration fee. No experience necessary.

Presenter Gika Rector, a former artist in residence at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, has been exploring felt-making as an art form for more than ten years. She gives classes and workshops in felt-making at various schools and centers in the Houston area and beyond.
