Painting with Wool: Folk Heart

Laura Berlage

Explore the magic of needle felting in a peaceful, floral folk heart form reminiscent of rosemaling and take your colorwork skills to a new level. In this class, you will learn to stretch a felt backing onto an embroidery hoop and transform the beautiful array of hand dyed roving into your own unique design. This class will explore shape creation, color blending, and three-dimensionality. At the end, Laura will offer suggestions for using or mounting your finished piece. You will even use wool harvested from sheep on Laura’s farm! You will receive wool in many colors to explore your creativity. You will arrange to pick up a felting kit from White Bear Center for the Arts before class begins. Additional supplies listed below.
