Wetfelting Tapestries

In January, Jennifer had the privilege of leading a wet felted tapestry workshop for teachers at the Alliance for Public Waldorf Education Conference. Teachers from public charter Waldorf school attended from all over the United States.
The workshop was held at the magical campus of Rudolf Steiner College in Fair Oaks, California.

Participants tirelessly and patiently drafted bits of luca sheep wool to create a base for their tapestries. We sang good-bye to Winter and welcome to Spring! 
Next, we drafted bits of plant-dyed wool from Mama Jude. She is a Waldorf handwork teacher in Georgia who dyes the most amazing vibrant colors naturally. Here is a link to her Etsy shop.

One of the participants joined Jennifer the following week for a Tunisian crochet class and she brought her finished (dried!) tapestry to share. Here it is! Beautiful.
