Wool Beads as Art Therapy

I always enjoy visiting SECU house, our local place for out of town patients and their caregivers to stay during an extended medical stay. Sawtooth provides artistic activities for the residents here several times a month and we always have a great time! One of the classes I teach here is making jewelry or bookmarks with wool beads we felt from wool fibers. Students felt a bead or 2 in their choice of colors, then string it onto harmonizing ribbon, adding coordinating novelty beads to create a beautiful necklace. Here are a few of the students and helpers wearing their unique creations.
