Tweens Have Furry, Fluffy, Felt Fun

For hundreds of years, wool fibers have been made into hats, jackets, boots and even homes. In today’s workshop, tweens learned the basic steps to making felt. 

Using hand-dyed wool, participants designed and made their own objects from felt. They then created small wall hangings, secret pouches, small purses and more.

Thank you to Toni from the Georgia Museum of Art for putting on this felt-astic program!

The Summer Reading Program “Tween Time” activities are designed for children aged 8-12.
