Round Felted Cushion

  • Dates: Friday, November 15 (1 Day), 9:00am-5:00pm
  • Tuition: $45
  • Instructor: Jo Hesse

Students will create a round meditation cushion, decorated with a mandala pattern. Although we will be jumping right into 3D feltmaking, this class is suitable for beginners as well as experienced felt makers. The seamless cushion cover will be felted around a resist. We will use a collage-like technique to create intricate colored inlays in the fabric.

Students need to bring the following supplies to the workshop:

  • 7 ounces of felting wool**
  • approx. 4 pounds of buckwheat hulls** or equivalent volume (approx. 2 gallons) of other stuffing material (e.g., polyfill, beans, rice, etc.)
  • sewing needle
  • upholstery thread
  • scissors
  • safety razor or electric trimmer
  • 2 towels
  • wrist braces (optional)

**Wool and buckwheat hulls will be available for sale from the instructor. If you would like to purchase from the instructor, please let her know in advance of the workshop. She can be reached at:
