This in-depth workshop explores the fascinating techniques of using vibrantly colored wool fleece to create fiber “paintings”. The workshop will offer an overview of needle felting as well as advanced techniques, and an opportunity to have time to explore the possibilities with this medium. Inspired by the natural surroundings of Lake Superior and Madeline Island, students will learn how to create landscapes using needle felting techniques. We will begin with smaller pieces, experimenting with using dimension and texture, and will develop these ideas into a large landscape, with options to include botanical or bird themes. All materials and equipment will be supplied. All experience levels are welcome, and if you have felting experience you will find opportunities for developing advanced techniques.
