Painting with fibers has been going on for thousands of years. Students will learn techniques from Turkey, Croatia, Mongolia and the U. K. for creating works of art in wool and silk. Practically anything you can do with a brush, you can do with fibers. The flexibility of this medium is what makes it so enjoyable – and changing your mind is easier with wool than with paint. Color blending and wet and dry felting techniques will be used to turn your visual images into spectacular felted wall hangings. Instructor will provide a luscious assortment of colors in wool, silk and pre-felt for canvas. Raw silk in various forms will be used to enhance and accent the designs. A supply list of common household items will be furnished upon registration.
