Join our Artist in Residence for April, Kat McClelland, to create a felted pet portrait!
In this two (2) day workshop we will be working with both needle and wet felting techniques to create a unique animal portrait.
Participants will bring their own reference material to the class. The first day of the workshop we will spend three (3) hours building a fun colorful background.
The second day of the workshop we will spend the day creating the animal portrait. (with a 30 minute break for lunch) We will use our reference material to establish a rough outline of the animal and then, using needle felting, layer the wool to create a touchably soft portrait.
THIS CLASS IS SUITABLE FOR ALL LEVELS!
