Felt Slippers

This past week in Earth Art students learned how to felt their own slippers with Terry Arnold. Terry is the mother of a former Conserve School semester student. She brought wool from her farm in Southern Minnesota and showed the students how to shape the wool into a slipper, add decorative stitching, and sew on a leather sole. Some students are even adding needle felted designs onto their slipper!
