Sculptural Felting: Beyond the Basics

Combine wool, soap and water, a felting needle and agitation and the sculptural possibilities are endless!  This is a day to experiment with the amazing sculptural flexibility of wool and go beyond the basics. Using a variety of fill or building a wire armatage students create a sculpture of their imagination. Some experience with wet felting is helpful but not necessary-- students are encouraged to register for Wooly Critters the day prior to gain experience.

Elise is a gardener and visual artist. She finds balance in the urban chaos by engaging the seasons. In the summer, she is usually outdoors in somebody’s garden - in the cold months, she is making art. The simplicity and endless possibilities of working with wool intrigues her, especially creating felted creatures inspired by her experiences as a painter and printmaker. “I can’t think of a more meditative, pure and organic medium than working with wool and water and reusing old socks.”
