Studio 65+: Felted Landscapes


Please note that  SJAC will continue to keep a mandatory mask policy in place for all workshops.

Workshop Description

Learn to create a beautiful fibre-based landscape with instructor Margaret Anne Smith. Using two felting techniques (wet-felting and dry or needle-felting), play with colours and textures and create a wall hanging to take home with you. You will learn about various kinds of wool and see how they work in this ancient craft of felt-making! The instructor will provide samples and photos for inspiration, walk you through the wet-felting and needle-felting processes, and give options for framing your finished work.
