Painting with Felt Workshop
Learn the art of painting with wool! Join us as Megan Hammer of Art Grows Wild shares the needle-felting technique that uses only wool and a needle to create a beautiful and unique piece of art. You will create a 4"x 6" frameable piece. No experience is necessary and all confidence levels are welcome! Megan will have inspiration pieces to guide you in creating a botanically themed piece, or you are welcome to bring a photograph to work from, or simply let your creativity run wild!
Megan embraces the textures of nature by creating felted wool botanical art. She has a background in painting and drawing, but has become captivated by the qualities of wool. Where a brushstroke once was, a tuft of cotton-candy-like fiber takes its place. Where a pencil would have created a sharp line, a needle now pushes a tiny strand of wool into place. She is continually surprised by the wonders of wool as an art medium and loves to share it with others!
