Felted Wool Feather Tree

MAX # OF STUDENTS: 8
INSTRUCTOR: Claudia Hill
We will create a tabletop tree reminiscent of the feather trees originally created by German immigrants who used dyed green or natural goose feathers. The feathers were wrapped around stiff wire to become the branches of the trees. These branches were then attached to a wooden rod for the trunk. We will substitute felted wool for feathers. There will be several color choices to be determined when students arrive.
Instructor will provide all supplies for the trees. Lunch of soup, bread & dessert included.
Student must bring sharp scissors!! (I recommend Tim Holtz Non-Stick Serrated Snip Scissors-Ergonomic Large – Available at most craft stores)
