Official website

An introduction with a Master teacher! Ticket required. Show Admission Included.

An introduction to the ever-more popular style of needle felting, where you learn to “paint” a design from wool! Your instructor, Dani Ives, is a self-taught fiber artist and author of 'Painting With Wool: Sixteen Artful Projects to Needlefelt' who has taught hundreds of students in workshops across the United States and internationally. Instead of using paint and a brush, Dani uses wool fibers and a felting needle to create the effects of layering color, creating texture and depth to a piece of work. You will learn a number of two-dimensional needle felting techniques that you’ll be able to apply to your own tastes and styles. This is one 3-hour workshop. Materials provided will include a kit with everything you need to finish multiple projects: felting foam pad, felting needles in two sizes, various fabric for backgrounds, a 6” embroidery hoop and lots of beautiful wool. You will also receive free access to Dani’s online felting course, Felt With Me, a $65 value.
