Felt With Me: Learn how to "paint" with wool
Ready to paint with wool?
I love teaching. But more importantly, I love empowering others to bring more creativity and inspiration into their lives and build new skills. I've been teaching other creatives in workshops across the states and internationally how to needle felt for a couple years now, but I can't travel and teach full time. So after many requests, I've built an online course that not only teaches my tried-and-true techniques for "painting with wool," it offers multiple self-paced projects that are taught with step-by-step video tutorials, so you can take your time and soak it all in.
Is Fiber art for me?
I believe magical things happen when you try new mediums. It happened for me when I tried acrylics for the first time last year. Painting and experimenting with a brush definitely helped to up my fiber arts game and taught me valuable lessons that I carried over to wool.
Fiber arts are special, and using wool as a medium is incredibly tactile--it's unique in a way that each fiber touches your fingers before becoming part of your art. You control the placement of the fibers with careful handling of the needle. You layer colors, create textures, and make beautiful pictures with FIBER. How amazing is that?!
What Supplies will I need?
I've curated a kit to accompany this course that contains exactly what I use to create my wool paintings. Click the Kit button below for all the details. Once you're inside the course, I have an entire lesson and lots of info about the supplies I use and why, including direct links to my favorite suppliers. To help you get an idea of what you'll need to finish these projects, we use the following in the lessons: needle felting foam pad, wool felt as a base fabric, assorted colors of wool roving/batting, at least two felting needles (my fave is size 38 star).
Tell me more!
The course includes three** projects that emphasize different aspects of my techniques. I'll walk you through the steps of creating a realistic tulip, a slice of pizza and a butterfly. I've also included a bonus lesson that focuses specifically on how to use color for highlights and shading. **UPDATE: New lessons will be added June/July 2017. I'm working on a potted plant and adorable bear tutorials!
