Felt Story Shawl Intermediate to advanced felters with a thirst for knowledge and a love of dynamic, fast paced learning environments will rea lly enjoy Alexandra Keely’s workshop. At the end of this all encompassing two days you will leave with your own handmade “story shawl”. Through hands-on learning you will discover a plethora of techniques used to create stunning textures using loosely woven cloths, an assortment of fibers, yarns and physical manipulation. There will be time to reflect on techniques learned, to contemplate color schemes, and to get to work sketching out your masterpiece. After carefully laying out the wool accordingly your own designs, we will begin the wonderful transformation of fleece into felt.
