Felted Landscapes – Margaret Anne Smith

New Brunswick College of Craft and Design 457 Queen Street, Fredericton, NB, Canada

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. 16x20") over two days.
