Watercolor Felting Class: 8/10

Mini Sheepscape: Watercolor Felt Landscape with Sheep
Saturday, August 10th
1:30-3:30 pm

Three registration spots remaining: 12 participant maximum
Registration closes August 7th or when capacity is reached.

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
$20 program fee

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.——————————–

We ask that you register for programs by calling (614) 866-4302 or through our calendar, https://shepherdscorner.org/calendar. All programs have a minimum of 5 participants.
