Sculptural Felting

June 21, 2020 – June 27, 2020

Shana Kohnstamm

This workshop will focus on the interplay of wet-felting and needle-felting techniques to produce solid three-dimensional objects with an emphasis on form and color. Using wire, found objects and wool as armature, students interested in creating dynamic sculpture will explore their own designs. Wool varieties, tools, surface design and finishing techniques will be covered. Demonstrations and structural problem solving will lead to independent exploration and personalized skill sets. No previous felting knowledge is required but those students who already know one technique are encouraged to delve into the other. Note: Both techniques require repetitive arm and hand motion.


Shana Kohnstamm is a full-time studio-artist living in Bethesda, Maryland. Her fascination with wool as a medium motivates her to push the boundaries of what we expect of textile and fiber art. Her joy of experimentation translates to the artwork she creates. Kohnstamm’s work has been featured in Fiber Art Now, Worldwide Colours of Felt, Mr. X Stitch, TextileArtist and Dyeing House Gallery.
