Unlocking The Wool: Sculptural Wet and Needle Felting

June 3, 2018 – June 9, 2018

Shana Kohnstamm

While wet felting wool fibers has been around for thousands of years, needle-felting as an art form is mere decades old. In this workshop students learn both techniques to create solid three-dimensional objects with an emphasis on form and color. Using wire, found objects and wool itself as armature, participants interested in creating dynamic sculpture explore their own designs. Wool varieties, tools, surface design and finishing techniques are covered. Needle-felters wanting to try wet-felting or vice versa are encouraged to attend though all skill levels are welcome. Note: Both techniques require repetitive arm and hand motion.




COURSE FEE: $525
