Needle-Felt Seascape, Half Day Workshop
Saturday, March 2, 1 pm - 4 pm
Create a beautiful underwater ocean scene as we explore the magic of needle-felting! Have fun layering textures and colors as we learn how various fibers interact and “play” together. We’ll combine wool fibers with silk to create exotic fish and add a bit of stitchery and beading to enhance our seascape scene on a hand-dyed wool background. We’ll play around with lots of fun embellishments such as netting, yarns, curly and novelty fibers, and hand-dyed scrim. Your work of art will finish to approximately 11” x 16”. A fun class for all skill levels.
Materials List: Kit, $25 payable to instructor, includes 11” x 16” rectangle of hand-dyed wool, fiber/embellishment bag, thread, beads, a single felting needle (additional needles are $2) and the pattern. Students are encouraged to stop by Annie’s Keepsakes booth prior to class and choose their wool background and kit - no two will be the same! Bring to class: multi-needle felting tool (I use the green-handled 5-needle tool by Clover), available in the Annie’s Keepsakes booth or class, $16.95. 2” thick foam pad at least 8” x 10” (available at the booth/in class, $4). Embroidery needle for pearl cotton, beading needle, small sharp scissors, paper scissors. Optional: single felting needle size 38, embroidery floss/pearl cotton in blue/greens, beads or other embellishments to personalize your art piece.
