Our current workshops:


Wool Painting
Friday • May 17 • 10Am-1PM & Saturday • May 18 • 10AM-1PM
Instructor: Liz Canali

What is WOOL PAINTING?
It is exactly what it sounds like: painting with wool. The difference is that you’re using a notched/barbed needle instead of a paint brush, and colorful tufts of wool instead of paint. This style of 2D needle felting lets you layer and “paint” embellishments for pieces that are bursting with texture and depth. You can decorate a tote or garment, or create a frameable artwork.
This class is for all levels.

Members pay $150, Non-members pay $175.
Basic materials for this class are included - small felting pad, prefelt for background, wool assortment and felting needles.
Optional material list will be provided before workshop starts.
