In this course, you will have the opportunity to make wrist bands, hats, baby booties, mittens, pillows, and scarves, using the same techniques as on a larger skinnfell. Sheepskins and tools will be available for purchase through Vesterheim or through the instructor. Individual material costs will vary, based on the number of items each student makes.
