Instructor Information: Pamela is a retired art teacher, living on a small farm just outside of scenic Grand Rapids, Ohio.  Since her retirement, she has become impassioned with traditional wet felting. She finds traditional felting energizing in its versatility and the medium pushes her into constant and exciting engineering challenges. Pamela has been teaching felting classes in her studio as well as classes nationally and internationally.  Her work has been exhibited in international and national invitational art shows and is in private collections. 

Workshop Description: This Felted Teapot 3 day class will focus on creating a beautiful, although non-functional, felted teapot. You will learn how to make a well-fitting stopper/top, a sturdy handle and discuss additional elements including how to make and add feet. Each teapot will be unique: your teapot could have a double spout or a double spout with a handle to make it a Native American wedding vessel. There will be time for discussion on the many possibilities and combinations for creating any teapot.  Many of the discussions and demonstrations will also relate to making vessels though this will not be the focus of the class.  

Materials and Supplies: Supply and material lists will be sent as class date approaches. Students will be ordering Finnish wool (this is Pam’s mandatory preference for this workshop) before the workshop.  THSG will help with this ordering process.  Students will supply their own merino wool and other items for embellishment on the top layer of the teapot.
