Felted Landscapes

In this workshop you will learn how to lay out a beautiful landscape setting of your choice, using a wet felted background. We'll discuss some of the basic facets of creating a landscape with depth and vivid imagery and then follow some very simple steps to creating felted works to capture the beauty of nature ”.  We will practice simplifying photographs using a variety of techniques. You may choose from carded wool in many colors, curly locks, nebs, and yarns. 

Materials: Inspiration photos of a landscape in print. The instructor will provide all other materials, background felt, needles, foam pads, and colored wool for “painting” your landscape. There is materials fee of $10 paid to the instructor on the day of the class.

Intructor: Marty Elkins

Marty is from Wrinkle in Thyme Farm in Sumner Maine. Marty has an oil painting background which made it easy for her to switch to felting, but it is sooo much more satisfying! She enjoys seeing learners complete their works and and enjoy their creations.
