MAGIC POUCH - Mmom/dad/greandparents are also welcome with kids
Young people will love wrapping beautifully dyed sheep wool around a special smooth
rock with their hands. They will use warm water, a little soap and some gentle rubbing to
felt around it. They will then cut a slit into the felt, remove the stone, and turn the pouch
around to reveal the magical colors hidden inside. A twizzled cord will become the strap.
This lovely pouch will be destined to carry many little treasures.

25€ per child

INTRODUCTION TO FELT

Join us for some felting fun! Create this versatile and ancient wool fabric with just water,
soap and the magic of your hands (+ a couple of helpful tools). To get familiar with the
medium, we will start with a simple ball/rattle/pin cushion, a soap scrubby and a key
chain. Next, we will create a flat piece of felt which can be made into a pillow cover/hot
pad/coaster. On the second day we will work on a bag to hold all your other treasures.
During these two days you will learn about different types of wool, felting traditions, all
basic felting and decorating processes, how to make a pattern for 3-dimensional pieces,
trouble shooting and finishing techniques.

i am originally from vienna, austria, but moved to the US for my university degrees and got stuck there :) i first came across natural dyes in college 25 years ago. my wonderful teacher barbara setsu pickett taught me the basics and encouraged me to take part in a workshop by michele wipplinger on natural dye extracts...the rest is history...i've been steeping in madder, indigo, weld & co ever since! i ended up working with michele during my time in seattle and took many more classes with other known natural dye specialists over the course of half a lifetime. i owned a design, natural dye & felt business "VERMILIO" for 12 years selling at places like MOMA, San Francisco, The Mother Goose, Portland, KOBO, Seattle, or the BAM ARTSfair, Bellevue and ran a little cute store in vienna with my mom for some time. i conducted natural dye workshops on 4 continents & volunteered a bunch in se asia - my dream home! i recently moved back to vienna and am eager to spread my love for & knowledge of natural dyes here in europe!

 

ich komme ursprünglich aus Wien, Österreich, bin aber für meinen Universitätsabschluss in die USA gezogen und dort stecken geblieben :) ich bin vor 25 Jahren im College zum ersten Mal auf Naturfarben gestoßen. meine wunderbare Lehrerin Barbara Setsu Pickett hat mir die Grundlagen beigebracht und mich ermutigt, an einem Workshop von michele Wipplinger über Naturfarbstoff-Extrakte teilzunehmen....der rest ist geschichte...seitdem bin ich in Krapp, indigo, Schweißen & co. getaucht! ich arbeitete schließlich mit michele während meiner zeit in seattle und nahm im laufe meines halben lebens noch viele weitere kurse bei anderen bekannten naturfarbstoffspezialisten. ich besaß 12 Jahre lang ein Geschäft für Design, Naturfarbstoffe und Filz "VERMILIO", das ich an Orten wie MOMA, San Francisco, The Mother Goose, Portland, KOBO, Seattle, oder der BAM ARTSfair, Bellevue, verkaufte und mit meiner Mutter eine Zeit lang einen kleinen, niedlichen Laden in Wien betrieb. ich führte Naturfarbstoff-Workshops auf 4 Kontinenten durch und arbeitete ehrenamtlich in Asien - meinem Traumhaus! ich bin vor kurzem wieder nach Wien gezogen und möchte meine Liebe und mein Wissen über Naturfarbstoffe hier in Europa verbreiten!
