Phone: 204-479-0839

No previous experience is required

In this workshop I will lead you step-by-step through the process of wet felting your own unique piece of felt art.  You will select colours that speak to you from wool roving and batts.  You will also have the option of creating texture and colour by applying silk fibres and wool yarn to decorate your work.  At the end of the day you will have completed a beautiful piece of felted art that you will take home to dry, as well as written instructions for you to experiment more and sources of wool that I use.

This is such an exciting art medium to work with and there are so many opportunities to use it whether as a wall hanging, home décor or 3D art.

Please bring an apron or old shirt and a lot of enthusiasm and energy  as well as a bag lunch.  Coffee and tea will be available.

About myself:

I am a practicing glass and felt artist. I was trained by the fantastic felt landscape artist Bridget Bernadette Karn of York, England.  She is the first fibre artist ever accepted into a juried exhibition of the Royal Academy of Art, London, England. I am a member of TFAM (Textile and Fibre Artists of Manitoba) as well as the Gwen Fox Gallery, Selkirk and PORAC (Prairie Oaks Regional Arts Council).
