Painting with wool Workshop
Join fiber artist, Dani Ives, for an after-hours felting workshop at Purple Monkey Playroom!
6:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Join me for this fun and super informative needle felting workshop! We’ll explore the art of Painting With Wool and learn lots of two-dimensional needle felting techniques that you’ll be able to 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: felting foam pad, felting needles in two sizes, various fabric for backgrounds, a 6” embroidery hoop and lots of wool.
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! Bring your reference photos on your phone, or printed (about 5” x 7” size) on paper if you’d like to transfer it directly rather than just sketching it. (I'm happy to answer any questions about or help you choose the project you'd like work on: firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Lastly, you’ll get free access to my online felting course, Felt With Me (a $65 value). This course will provide you with additional projects, lessons and help you refresh what you learned in the workshop. Yay!
Light snacks and great company provided!
