|Making our dolls|
The past two weeks, I have had the pleasure of working with this lovely homeschool family during our Open Studio Day. Each Monday afternoon in July, I open my fiber studio on the farm to folks ages 9-99 to come and explore fiber art. Every week, I plan a new activity to guide the group through the wonders of working with wool. Yesterday, we made fairy dolls out of all natural materials. This activity introduced them to wet felting and three dimensional construction. Next week, we will be making flat pieces of felt and then cutting and sewing our felt into birds.
