Painting with Wool: Felted Landscapes
Are you inspired by landscapes but don’t paint? Use wool and other fibers to create your favorite landscape instead! In this 1/2-day class, you’ll use felting needles to secure fibers to commercial prefelt and then complete your work of art with a fast and easy (i.e., non-labor-intensive!) wet felting process. You’ll receive your own reusable felting kit (bubble wrap, screen, 2 felting needles, a small piece of foam, and olive oil soap) and can expect to complete one small practice piece and one approximately 8″ x 10″ landscape during class. Along the way, you’ll learn the basics of color and composition and you’ll enjoy Katrina’s work samples with a variety of finishing and embellishment ideas.
Katrina Stone has been a fiber fanatic since childhood. She creates award-winning, nature-inspired works that incorporate the fiber techniques she loves – felting, sewing, beading, and knotting (macrame). Katrina is the current president of the Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance and makes her home in Gwinnett County with her husband and their fun-loving Boston Terriers.
