Class Title:  Creating Fiber Art Textile

Teacher Name: Anita Hotchkiss

Class Length: 2 hours

Class Fee: $30.00

Class Day/Time: Friday, 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Class Description:

 

Can’t find just the right piece of fabric for a project? Why not make it! This class will use a needle felting technique to create a custom piece of fabric using wool, scrap fabric, ribbons, Angelina fiber and more to create a final piece of fabric. The fabric can be used in any project or a stand-alone art piece.

There will be a discussion about Materials, Tools; using multi-needle hand felting tools/single needles (students may bring a needle felting machine if they have one) and the Process, with example projects utilizing  your new fabric. Then we’ll play and have FUN creating your own custom fabric! This technique can also be used to embellish a pre-existing piece you have; quilts, jackets, sweaters.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a class about technique so the completed project is the fabric. Also if you have a wool allergy, this may not be a suitable class.
