Felt-making is an ancient art found in many cultures. Although its origins were more practical than artistic, the old techniques have evolved and new ones have been invented, often straddling the line between art and craft. Students will learn basic wet and needle techniques through weekly projects. Some work may occasionally need to be prepared or
completed at home. Additionally, we will look at the work of a few contemporary felt artists. A materials fee of $30 is payable to the instructor at the first class.

Elizabeth Stubbs has been an artist all her life, working in a variety of mediums. For the past twenty years she has been exploring felt making as an art form and sharing it with others through classes and workshops at several locations including the Winsor School, Waldorf School of Lexington, ArtSpan Lexington, Umbrella Community Arts and with private students.
