Painting with Felt
June 22 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm$40
Come learn the basics of felt painting and needle techniques to create 2D felt wall hangings. We will demonstrate how to create wet felted batts as a base, the quickest way to start a 2D project. Then, we will needle tack merino, alpaca, angora and other types of wool to create a 2D painting of whatever your heart desires. Finally, we’ll run them through Echoview’s Felt Loom to quickly finish the project, a process that would take hours needling by hand! All supplies are included, but feel free to bring your own wool or roving if you’d like.
