Quillies & Standing Wool 

With Rebecca Martin, Storyteller Wool

Sept. 3rd

10-12:30, $55

Min. 10

In this class you’ll learn all about the art of standing wool and quillies. Wool felt and fabric (fleece and leather can also be used) can be cut and coiled in a variety of ways to make circles, flowers, leaves, and more to add interest and texture. Countless combinations can come together to add detail to hooked rugs or they can be used in stand-alone projects, large and small, craft to fine art. Using a combination of simple sewing and glue you’ll learn how to create a floral jar topper using your own materials or a kit that can be purchased. Detailed written instructions will be emailed after class, so there is no need to worry about taking notes. If making a jar topper isn't an interest, all the techniques taught can be applied to other projects - the jar topper is simply a charming way to display your in-class creations.  All materials are included in the class to make one gift jar.  Please bring a small sharp pair of scissors to class.  Ages 10 and up.
