Strawberries and Wet Felting–June 8, 2011

After picking and tasting some ripe strawberries next to the library, the kids ate a snack and then played a game of tag. We had everyone’s wool gardens set up on tables outside with with a rectangle of Grandmother’s sheet, bubble wrap, plastic sheet, rubber bands and a foam magic wand for rolling the pieces. Janice Redman taught us how to pour the water, add some olive oil soap (not too much) and roll away. We hosed off the pieces and laid them on the deck to dry in the hot sun with a little help from two towels and some stomping feet.
