What is Feltmaking? Presentation
This October, feltmaker Mary Reichert will lead a three week community rug making project during her 2018 instructor residency at North House Folk School. Whether you drop in to learn how to card raw wool one time, or spend days designing and helping to felt the giant rug, there is a place for everyone in the community rug project. Mary will share her extensive knowledge of cultural traditions around felted rugs as the community works together to design and create the final piece- which will be hung in the fibers classroom on the North House campus for all to enjoy.
