felted boot workshop

Amy’s finished sample boots
Such a fun group.  Amy’s son Jae was a star pupil, we were all trying to keep up with him.
Two layers and both boots are felted around one foam insert and then cut apart as in the last photo.  Lots of soapy water and booty shaking.
talk about bigfoot…
Amy and her husbands wonderful studio and of course one of their eager helpers.  Check out their etsy site.

What a fun day we had at a felting workshop given by one of our fiber group members, Amy Arnold.  In preparation for an upcoming class with the Driftless Folk School Amy asked if we wanted to to give felted boot making a try and of course we were up for it.  I had some reservations in that anything I have ever wet felted has come out looking more like a convoluted brain blob.  Fortunately I like my boots way better than anything I have felted before.  They will be great for keeping my feet warm while I am weaving.  Thanks Amy for being such a great teacher!
