Painting with Wool: Flower Fantasy Online Course
Explore the magic of needle felting in a peaceful, floral circular form and take your colorwork skills to a new level. In this class, I’ll show you how to stretch your felt backing onto an embroidery hoop and keep it tight for ease of use and how to transform the beautiful array of hand dyed roving from my farm’s sheep into your own
interpretation of the design. Enough wool of each color will be supplied, so you can work any of the colors on the mandala as suits your taste. Focus will be given to shape creation, color blending, and three-dimensionality. At the end, I’ll offer suggestions for using or mounting your finished piece. Bring your creative spirit and love of wool!
