Do our beautiful northern woods and waters inspire you? Would you like to create an artistic landscape through “painting” with fiber? We will work with wool fleece to create beautiful landscape pieces. Finished pieces can be used in a variety of ways, in home décor projects or framed as wall art. This class will cover basic needle felting techniques as well as some advance methods. All materials and tools will be provided. Let’s play with colorful wool!
Mary Burns is an award-winning fiber artist, creating weavings that reflect the hues and patterns of the natural world. Her jacquard loom allows her to craft her work in great detail, vibrancy, and character. She also weaves custom-designed rugs and wall pieces in addition to felting, natural dyeing and eco-printing. Mary’s most recent project is the Ancestral Women Exhibit, which includes woven portraits of an elder from each of Wisconsin’s 12 Native tribes and 12 complimentary weavings. She teaches tapestry and other fiber art techniques. Mary and her husband John Bates lead wildflower, birding, and natural history hikes, paddles and discussions.
Parking is available behind the LOLA Center for the Arts Building.
