I've been wearing this pair of boots now thru, gosh it must be 9, maybe 11, winters now. Thru dog walking and snowshoeing and my feet have never been cold and never gotten wet.

The felt boots in this workshop are made using traditional felting techniques from raw fiber....this workshop does not involve any knitting!

To be successful making these boots you need to have some experience in traditional, wet felting techniques already. It is best if you have made some 3-D items a hat or a vessel or pair of slippers ....or at least are familiar with using a resist.

This is not a beginner class, yet I've had a few people with "limited experience" take it say they learned a lot!

To make these boots you'll need about 1 pound of wool (max!) and you'll need to purchase soles, repurpose soles or make them yourself . Either way, this is an additional cost for you to consider in the overall cost of the boots since it is in addition to your workshop fee and whatever your fiber costs you. I include a module in the workshop on how to repurpose a sole and I also provide contact information for 2 sources of soles if you want to purchase them new.

Lastly, if you want to view either a very general course outline or for previous participants boot pics & testimonias, follow the highlighted links.

This current boot session runs 12/15/17 - 4/15/18 and registration is closed for it.

No future dates are available.
