Dawn will present a quick overview of the composition of different fibres and how felting works. For the rest of the morning, she will lead participants into wet felting the background to their felting art piece, experimenting with different textures. In the afternoon participants will needle felt a second picture onto the background, learning different blending techniques. Once finished the students will come away with a felted piece of art.
