Wool is a good insulator and is slow to catch fire, making it a perfect material for oven mitts and pot holders. In this workshop you will be able to make either a set of 2 oven mitts or a pot holder and oven mitt.
To make the oven mitt, we will use a resist. This workshop is designed for the beginner felter who is new to using resists in feltmaking. A resist is used in felt making as a form to create the basic shape of the oven mitt. Once the mitt has partially felted, the resist is removed and the additional felting is done to further shrink the wool.
