Learn how to ‘paint’ with wool to create an 8” x 8” watercolor image using wet and dry felting techniques. You will build the background from a palette of dyed wool, add lines, shapes, shading, and highlights by applying wool and other fibers with a felting needle. Stitching can also be added for definition and detail. This is a beginner felting class.

Facilitated by: Gail Maraman
Gail became interested in wool and felt-making when she began caring for a small flock of sheep at Windy Crest Farm in Granville, Ohio. Using the wool from her own sheep, she learned how to design and create many different types of felt: traditional, watercolor, needle, and Nuno. Today, her finished felt pieces include wearable art accessories and items for home decor.
