Thursday, October 29, 6 – 9 pm

Kaylyn Gerenz

Create a cozy image inspired by our furry autumn friends in this introduction to 2-d needle felting for surface design! Explore the basic techniques of flat  needle felting with wool roving as we “paint” with wool to create a two-dimensional “needle-felt-by-number” design. Learn how to combine and layer various colors of wool roving together with the tap of a needle. Color blocking techniques and adding texture and detail will be covered, as you work on your own 6″ x 6″ piece to take home (along with your foam block and needles so you can continue explorations on your own!). Workshop supply fee $20, payable to instructor. **See supply list of items to bring to class**

Instructor Bio:

Kaylyn Gerenz is an educator and artist in St. Paul, MN who started needle felting over a decade ago. She uses fiber as a main element in her professional artwork to communicate the urgency to document memories and history, and continues to explore the idea of flesh and fabric as evocative containers.
