Painting with Wool

This isn’t your typical painting workshop—in fact, there’s no paint at all! Instead, our colors and textures will come from beautiful wool roving and batting fibers that combine in unexpected ways to create stunning “felted wool paintings.” Students will learn a variety of felting techniques and encounter numerous types of wool. Finished fiber pieces will vary in size and can be completed by framing for display, assembling multiple squares into a quilt, or turning two completed pieces into a pillow. The sky’s the limit!
