In this course, young children experience how they can make the wool meld and become an object through their magical fingers. All they need is wool and soapy water. Children practice being focused and patient. It’s more about a creative process than the outcome. They are actively involved in the process of an irreversible changing tactile product. Wet felting is an enjoyable activity for children with all abilities.
