About the event
Wet Felting: Fiber Fusion
Join us in exploring one of the world's oldest textiles: wool felting. Learn how to fuse tufts of wool roving into a sturdy, biodegradable fabric form. Feltmaking is a flexible and forgiving medium for all ages to enjoy! Together, we will create felt vessels with defined shapes and abstract designs. While this lesson will focus on introductory strategies, these techniques can be used to create nearly anything you can imagine! Functionality & beyond!

What is Creative Connections: Family Art Night?
This year White Rabbit Galleries is pleased to host a monthly series of art classes and instruction geared towards providing arts education to our community while also arranging a time for families, friends, and neighbors to spend time together in an engaging activity. Instruction, supplies, and refreshments are provided for this event, with opportunities to receive supplies to take home to continue creating work. Each Creative Connections class will cover a different medium of art and technique to maximize creativity and challenge. Participants can sign up for specific classes as they become available and are not required to attend every class. This program is made possible through funding provided by the Barberton Community Foundation.
When will the Creative Connections classes be held?
Our Creative Connections series will be held on every 4th Saturday of the month from 4:30pm-7:00pm.
Who is allowed to participate in the Creative Connections classes?
Anyone! You do not need to bring a family member or a child to attend the class. Attend the class with a friend or by yourself. Participants under the age of 14 must have a guardian present. These classes are recommended for children ages 8 & up and adults.
*How do I take advantage of the $15 per family fee cap and what is considered a "family"?
Families are encouraged to participate in our Creative Connections classes together. A "family" consists of children and their parents/guardians. A group of friends participating in the class together is not considered a family. The $15 per family fee cap is for families of 3 or more participants. Ex. Two parents/guardians and two children will pay $15 instead of $20.
To take advantage of our family option select the "Family (min. 3 participants)" option under "Tickets". (Select "View more price options" if Family ticket is not visible.) Select one ticket in the quantity tab, select "Checkout". List the number of participants when prompted. Complete checkout process.
