Felt Bags -Student/Teacher Work

These felt bags are examples of the assignment that my 2nd year 3-D art students are working on right now. The one on the left was made by senior Hannah Chung when I had her in the 9th grade, and the two on the right were made by me as demo. pieces. A close up will be in the next post. The students made their felt from scratch, from hand dyed wool rovings that came from Joanna Gleason's flock of Corriedale and Bond sheep in Lyons, Colorado ( Then they needle felted additional design elements on top and embellished with beads. They were also required to line the insides with a fabric that would flow visually with the outside colors. And lastly they had to make a closure. These are very functional bags.
