Cai Krikorian

I am a self-taught felter. I started exploring wet felting with my preschool class, doing simple flat pictures, felting rocks, felted bird nests. I moved into making gloves, slippers, and larger wall hangings (not with students). I worked with my spouse’s grade two class making felted globes, which was such a success that I am doing the project again this year.
I am an experienced teacher, teaching grade 1 in Alberta. Send me an idea of what you are covering in the curriculum and most likely we can turn it into a felting project.
