AlgomaTrad presents a Felting PaintingWorkshop w/ Dawn Allard, Sunday, Feb. 2
AlgomaTrad is presenting a Wool Felting Painting workshop on Sunday, February 2, from 10am to 3pm, with artist Dawn Allard of Willow Creek Farm. Workshop will take place at Sourgrass and Granite Farm (home of Julie and Pat) near Gordon Lake (Desbarats area). Cost for the workshop is $60, which includes all materials, and space is limited. Call 705 782 4311 0r 705 257 6106 to register, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. This workshop is suitable for 12 years of age to adult.
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. Wet felt paintings give your landscapes a dreamy look.
In this class you’ll be learning colour blending and layout. You’ll also have the chance to felt with dyed silk hankies. This is a wet felt painting so a lot of your work will be done before the the felting stage with final touches being needle felted in after.
Once finished the students will come away with a felted piece of art.
