Description

Can’t draw? do watercolors? oils? but love color and creating things?  Ever thought of felting?  It’s what I call ‘painting with wool’.  It’s tactile,  it’s creative., it’s a little messy, and it’s fun!  Using beautiful dyed wool you will design and create unique wearable and frameable art.  You will learn wet felting and Nuno felting techniques to produce amazing scarves that will reflect your vision, your personality.  Then using needle felting (not sewing but jabbing the wool with a special felting needle) over a wet felted background you will “paint” a picture that can be hung or turned into whatever you can think of!  Felting can be as easy or complicated as you want it to be.  It can be used to produce practical items or whimsy.  It’s not strenuous, but you will use your arms and shoulders.  Felting will give you a whole new outlook on Art.

Students will make 1 wet felted scarf, 1 nuno felted scarf and 1 needle felted on wet felted design.

Ellen Davison began painting in watercolors in 1969 and has been painting, learning, and teaching ever since.  In 2002, she took a silk painting  workshop and fell in love with another but similar form of artistic expression.  Along the way, she learned to felt.  Again a whole new door opened.  She calls felting – painting with wool.  She loves its tactile qualities, and like watercolors and painting on silk, it’s full of surprises.  Her watercolors are shown at Islesford Artist Gallery, Islesford, Maine.  Her silk scarves and felted scarves are displayed at Winters Work, a gifts and crafts shop, at the Islesford Dock, Islesford, Maine.
