Join our Artist in Residence for April, Kat McClelland, to create a black and white needle felted portrait!
Students will learn how to needle felt a black-and-white portrait from a photo reference of their choice. We will work from an outline transferred directly from their photo. Using merino top and a pressed felt canvas participants will create their own work of art.
