Kaylyn Gerenz

Discover the magic of painting with wool! Join this special intergenerational needle felting workshop, open to youth ages 6-15 yrs with an accompanying adult. Learn to finger blend with wool using a vibrant rainbow of colors. Create dimension and depth by layering and mixing wool in a painterly way. Use small gauge needles to create subtle gradient shifts while working on cotton muslin and foam. Create a unique 6″ x 6″ felted wool “painting” that is full of color, texture, and pattern! Materials fee of $5 per participant, payable to instructor at the time of class, will cover needles and muslin fabric.

When checking out in the shopping cart, please add the name of the children attending in the “Order notes (optional)” box!
