Each participant will make a large felted
wool ’Painting', of a landscape scene (or flowers or whatever you
wish!) of their choice with lots of detail. Using different
“painting with wool” techniques, you will be shown various trees,
moons, sunsets, northern lights, flowers, and birds or animals, etc.
You will then be shown various ways to mount or use your work of
art when you take it home. This workshop is suitable for beginners
or experienced felters as your wool painting can be as intricate or
as simple as you like. We will be learning both needle felting and
20 Lawrence St.
Students should Bring
Supplies to bring:
- 2-3 large bath towels•Cushion foam 24" x 16"(best size) or 18" x 18" or larger and at least 2" thick (you can get this at Walmart, in the craft section, or Fabricville). MUST have this. If you cannot find or get a piece of foam, please let me know, and I will bring one for you. They cost about $8-10.
- Small sharp scissors.
- a picture or two that you might want to felt. Print off a clear 8 x 10. (Optional, I will have lots with me) Pictures on an IPad or tablet work well. You do not have to decide on your picture before the workshop, there will be lots of time to decide and discuss what you might like to do.
- there are some other optional things you can bring. You will receive a detailed list a few weeks before the workshop.
