Who's your hero? On the anniversary of the 19th Amendment, we're honoring those who came before and inspire us to forge ahead Makers-style, with some fierce-some girl power. As a homage to the genius of Bonnie Burton's feminist finger puppets, we will be creating our very own felted versions of our favorite inspirational women, using an original combination of traditional wet felting and needle felt techniques. Learn fundaments of both wet felting and armature needle felt. Celebrate solidarity and empowerment with other women in an inspiring environment!
Ages: Most suitable for adults of all ages - no experience necessary!
Materials: All supplies are included.
