Painting with Wool
Using natural and dyed wool, mohair locks, many fluffs of other natural fibers, and a felting needle participants can "paint" a picture on a piece of felt. The picture can be of anything - landscape, an animal, a pet- bring a few pictures of your own for inspiration, but the instructor will have samples too. The painting will be wet-felted after the picture is completed to make the finished item appear to be part of the flat felt.
