Wet Felting with Cai Krikorian

Smaller projects have included making wet felted: bird nests with felted eggs, a flat picture, doll clothing. The class takes about 3 hours for a group of 18 students. In the past I have worked at the back of the classroom with small groups of 4-6 while the teacher continued regular class instruction. I am willing to come into the class over three days or whatever schedule works for the teacher.

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.
