Textile Workshops

Felting is one of our favourite crafts.

We are currently offering four textile workshops starting soon, including dyeing using a crock pot, flat felting using a number of colors, three-dimensional felting, and needle felting. With just a little fibre and a few simple supplies, you can create a one-of-a-kind felted design, sculpt woollen shapes using special needles, or learn to dye fleece for your felting projects.

Workshops are being conducted at the library by Tricia Rasku, a local fibre artist. Come join us to explore the possibilities, and make a unique gift for someone special or a treasured keepsake for yourself.

Kits are supplied with everything you need to work on the following projects:

  • Dye fleece using a crock pot and go home with a length of fleece
  • Learn the mechanics of the felting process and take away a completed project
  • Make a small item, such as a small purse using wool and patterns
  • Create soft sculpted shapes that will warm your heart with just a little wool and a felting needle

  • Mondays
  • 6 - 8 p.m.
