Wet Felted Scarf Workshop (online)

AGES 16+

November 7 & 8

(2 online sessions) Saturday 9am–12pm, Sunday 12pm–2pm

Felting wool is one of the oldest forms of textile craft, and can be learned by anyone. In this workshop, you will learn to make a super-soft merino wool scarf using wool, soapy water, bubble wrap, and your clothes dryer. Handmade wool scarves make a wonderful holiday gift and are fun to make! Options are available if you don’t have a dryer at home or would rather learn the old-fashioned method.

Students should purchase their own supplies, which include: spray bottle, dish soap (you only need a little; dawn original works really well), bubble wrap (at least 16 feet, small firm bubbles work best), towel, one pair of knee-high pantyhose (dollar store are fine), fine/top merino wool roving, 22-18 microns, at least 3.5 oz in whatever color(s) make you smile. The following are some great examples:

Links to Zoom video sessions will be shared with participants via email.

scholarships & aid

FAVA reviews and considers all application for scholarship assistance. While we may not be able to provide a complete scholarship to all those who request it, we are committed to making our classes available to as many people as possible – regardless of individual financial circumstances. For this reason, it is important that all scholarship requests are received well in advance of the class starting date, so we may allocate our available funds accordingly. We may consider any of the following factors when determining eligibility for scholarships:

  • Annual family income
  • Individual or special circumstances
  • Whether the applicant qualifies for the National Free/Reduced Price School Lunch program
    (for students age 18 & younger)


**FAVA also encourages applicants to consider partial scholarship assistance, in which case the student only pays some portion of the class tuition.

All information will be kept confidential and will be used solely to determine the amount of scholarship assistance to be provided.
