Come needle felt a portrait of your pet! 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 pet portrait. All skill levels welcome. Supply kits will be provided (that you’ll use and take home after class) and will include everything you need to finish your portrait: felting foam pad, felting needles in two sizes, practice fabric, embroidery hoop (5” or 6” depending on composition), wool felt for background fabric 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. To help you prepare, I’ll email you after registration to help you decide on the best photo to use for your portrait. If you already have a photo chosen and want to run it by me, send it to hello@daniives.com.

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!
