Wool appliqué, embroidery and felting
Testimonial from the website:

"Wool Appliqué Without Going Broke" was amusing and
full of helpful tips from inexpensively obtained wool to
hand dyeing wool.  All attendees of the workshop had a
blast while completing two projects using Appliqué and
needle felting techniques.  Kits were a great value.​
