Get ready for Spring by making bright, showy flowers from wool. Daffodils, tulips, lilies, corn flowers, daises to name a few – we will create these classics or flowers from your imagination. Starting will wool roving and adding embellishments, students will use the different techniques of wet felting, nano felting, felting with a form, and needle felting to fashion an original bouquet of flowers. This class is suitable for both beginners and intermediate felters.
Sue Carey first started raising sheep 30 years ago and became interested in using her sheep’s fiber for needle felting over 20 years ago. Being a fiber artist and shepherd, are two passions that integrate extremely well with the sheep’s wool providing raw material for her artistic endeavors. As a shepherd, she has gained extensive knowledge of wool including proper ways of nurturing, genetics, handing, and processing.
