Wet Felted Vessel Workshop
In this 2 hour workshop, we will use wet felting to create a small vessel, or bowl. Wet felting is a process
where wool, warm water, soap, and agitation are combined to create felt. Students will learn the basics
of wet felting and how to utilize a resist to create a three-dimensional form. Beginners and experienced
felt makers are welcome!
Students are encouraged to bring an old towel or two to class. All materials will be provided.

Education with a minor in Crafts.  During her time at Kutztown, she concentrated her studio studies
around the fiber arts, including both weaving and non-loom techniques. In April 2013, Kimberly was
accepted as a resident artist at the Banana Factory in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  Being a resident artist
has allowed her to grow immensely and has led to many wonderful opportunities including group and
solo exhibitions, as well as teaching throughout the Lehigh Valley. She loves creating and experiencing
all she can in the area of fiber arts, while teaching classes in weaving and various types of felt making
within the community.
