PAINTING WITH WOOL | instructor: dani ives
Dani will guide you through the art of Painting With Wool and teach you lots of two-dimensional needle felting techniques that you’ll apply to your own tastes and style. Kits will be provided (that you’ll use and take home after class) and will include everything you need to finish multiple projects. After an introduction to basics, we’ll dive into more specific methods to build up your felting skills. Topics I’ll discuss and demonstrate include getting an image onto your fabric, different techniques for blending colors, and how to achieve fine details and various textures. You can work at your own pace, and I’ll be able to provide everyone with one-on-one assistance as desired. I encourage you to come with an idea or two of something you’d like to create, plus fun patterns will also be available.
Beginning woodcarving | instructor: amber perrodin
Create a one-of-a-kind wooden item for your home or office! Each participant will begin with a basic wooden shape and their very own c-shaped carving tool. Amber will walk you through the safe handling and proper form to begin carving details onto your very own unique creation. Once participants have created the texture they desire, we will embellish our new carvings with paint, gold foil, or just plain tung oil to enhance the wood’s natural features. Don’t worry…if you don’t like snakes, we will have a few other designs for you to choose from!
