Drop by this weekend to create your own gifts and holiday decorations inspired by the gardens and galleries at Wave Hill. Gift-giving never felt so good! Artist Anne Scully guides you through two techniques for felting—the art of transforming dyed wool into dense, colorful cloth.

Roll up your sleeves and practice bonding and shrinking the fibers using water, heat, and agitation to wet felt onto a usable loofah-like washcloth. Try your hand at the more intricate technique of needle felting to turn fibers into winter ornaments or gift tags. 

Children eight years old and older are welcome with an adult.
