Join us for a wool painting fiber arts workshop, where we will use wool to build a unique piece of art! With the guidance of art therapist Amanda Shaw MA, LMHC, ATR, step into your creativity. Wool painting, not to be confused with wet felting, is the process by which dry wool is layered in a method to create a stunning 3D visual art piece. During this fiber arts class, Amanda will introduce participants to the meditative nature of needling, review basic wool pulling/layering techniques while providing guidance and instruction on the development of your very own personal piece. This course is intended for everyone, beginners and the advanced alike! Be prepared to work step by step while creating a richly vibrant wool painting that may be personal, metaphorical or symbolic. Have fun and enjoy painting amongst fellow artists! Feel free to bring a photo reference of your desired image (landscape, bird, flower, etc.)
