August Programs at Shepherd’s Corner Ecology Center

Enthusiasm: August Labyrinth Walk
Friday August, 12th          7:00 – 8:30 pm
Registration closes 3 business days prior to program. Register by July 4th. All programs have a minimum of 5 participants.

Facilitated by Miranda Land
Suggested Donation: $5

WAITLIST AVAILABLE: Felting Class: Woolscapes
Felting Program: Woolscapes Class
Saturday, August 27th 1:30-3:30 pm

$20 program fee *7 participant maximum*

Learn how to work with dry wool to create needle-felted landscapes that represent the natural world. Using a single felting needle and a multi-needle tool, you can paint color with natural and dyed fibers just as you would with a paint brush. Your finished impressionist or abstract wool landscape will be 5” x 7” in size and can be framed for hanging.

Gail Maraman 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 décor.
