WEEKEND TWO (2-day): June 29 – 30, 2019 Classes run 9 am – 4 pm each day and students are welcome to stay longer in the studio.
A needle felting workshop to sculpt a fantastical creature from wool and your imagination. Students will begin by learning which fibres are best for needle felting and the different types of needles used. Learn how to create and join different shapes, and how to felt around a wire armature. Students will create a 6” felted fantastical creature, like a mermaid, as a learning project on the first morning.
Students will then be challenged to create a fantastical creature in their own style, beginning with a wire armature where needed and felting the basic body shape. Students will felt on a coloured top coat, features, details and expressions to bring their creatures to life.
All levels welcome

Nancy Wesley (nan.c) is a creative contemporary felt designer who has been teaching and felting full time for 9 years. Trained as a graphic designer at the Ontario College of Art her works shows her love of line and clean simple design. She has lived in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island for 18 years.
Nancy’s process begins by hand dyeing wool roving then sculpting and manipulating it using a variety of felting techniques. The inspiration for her dye-pot is nature. The myriad of shades and depth of each colour is what she attempts to mimic with the dyeing process, never aiming for a solid colour. Nancy combines needle felting techniques with the ancient methods of wet felting to create her line of art influenced by her graphic design background and her love of myth and folklore.
