Ukrainian Museum
222 E 6th St, New York, New York 10003
Pupils will learn the basic technique of felting that has been used in Ukraine for over a thousand years. Each participant will make a sample of felt out of fleece, large enough to be used as a small pillow cover, placemat, or wall hanging. Open to adults and students over 16 years of age.

After placing the fleece, it will be soaked with soap and water, then rolled and pounded until it transforms into a sturdy fabric. Students will then learn how to «paint» traditional Ukrainian motifs with wool to decorate the felt sample.

It's an exciting opportunity to learn an unusual and delightfully rewarding craft. Register early — limited space!

Date: Sunday, October 8
Time: 12 – 5 p.m.

Workshop fee: Adults – $40; students over 16 & seniors – $35;
members – 10% discount

Instructor: Marta Zahaykevich
