Wet Felted Journal Cover Workshop with Patti Barker


$270.00 per person



About this experience

Learn how to use a resist and create a one-of-a-kind art statement. We will decorate our journal covers inside and out, and make felt cording to fasten it closed. The covers shown are inspired by nature, but students are encouraged to bring their own inspiration and creative visions! At the end of the workshop, you will leave with a finished cover, sans the button for closure. Materials for your project are not provided by the instructor, but can all be found at Northwest Yarns & Mercantile. We offer a 10% on all materials you purchase for this class. 

There is an additional $10 fee for the resist pattern used in this workshop that can be paid before you begin.

  • 3 ounces (90 grams) merino wool (several colors)
