Have a Bowl with Beth
Mini-Workshop with Beth Marx
May 9, 2023

Our Evening Guild Meeting will include a participatory demonstration by Felter Extraordinaire, Beth Marx.

  • There will be space for 25  pairs of hands to learn to make a felted bowl. 
  • We will be registering people for these 25 seats.
  • Registration will be open through the Guild website April 2, 2023
  • Although there is no cost, there is a supply list, some things will be  supplied by the guild but you will need to bring some things. 

We encourage you to find a buddy and allow your buddy to help you  and/or “take turns”-  there will be an option to list your buddy at registration- but only one of you should sign up.  We anticipate that everyone who wants to get their hands wet will be able to do so.

Beth will have her trunk show and there will be Show & Tell.  We encourage everyone to attend even if you don’t participate in the demonstration - it will be fun to watch and there will be other things to do.  

Come make a resist-free sculptural bowl, stunning, giftable, and a whole lot of fun. This is a terrific beginning project.

Material Fee: None
The workshop teacher will provide the sampling fibers.
