Hand Felted Ring on a Gourd

I spent the past week participating in activities at Common Ground on the Hill at McDaniel College.  One class I took was Exploring Wet and Dry Felting using  Navajo-Churro wool.  Instructor Roy Kady is a master craftsman and shepherd from the Navajo Nation reservation and he shared his knowledge of his culture and his craft throughout the class.

The first project was to create a wet felted ring.  Once the ring was dry I attached it to the top of a painted gourd using wax linen cord.  I added beads around the top as well.
