Felted Landscapes – Margaret Anne Smith

July 15, 2023 @ 9:00 am - July 16, 2023 @ 4:00 pm

$164.00 – $205.00

2-DAY WORKSHOP

Saturday, July 15, 9am – 4pm
Sunday, July 16, 9am – 4pm

Depict the colours and textures of your favourite landscape with wool! In this two-day course, learn about various kinds of wool (a sustainable material) and see how they work in this ancient craft of felt-making! Using two felting techniques (wet-felting and dry or needle-felting), play with colours and textures and create wall hangings to take home with you. If you like, bring a photo or sketch of a chosen landscape. The instructor will provide samples and additional photos for inspiration; walk you through the wet-felting and needle-felting processes; demonstrate the basics of embellishing finished felted work with hand-stitching; and give options for framing your finished work. You will complete two small samples and one larger work (approx. 16×20″) over two days.
