Service Description

Beginner Felting Workshop by Patricia Anderson - Ages 13 and up "Felting is an ancient art that goes way back in history and was originally used to make the tents and yurts by the nomadic people of Asia. In recent times felting has become a fine craft with beautiful and tactile landscapes and images created using wool and are also called “painting with wool”. This workshop will teach you the process of creating a wet felted piece of art. You will start with a 12” x 12” wool batt as your canvas. On this you will add wool surface design as well as other embellishments such as silk, bamboo and other fibers. You will be taught how to felt the wool to create a piece of firm felted fabric and we will discuss ways to display your art work. You will also be provided with written instruction and Canadian sources of wool and fibers. I will also provide kits that you can purchase to enable you to continue with your experimentation in this beautiful art form until you are ready to order your own supplies. This basic skill can lead to more involved wall art pieces. I am a landscape artist and have worked in acrylic, kiln formed glass and felting. I have taught adults and children wet felting and dry felting and will show you what can be achieved. Felting is such a tactile and stimulating medium that can be created by anyone young or old." https://goo.gl/maps/D8tgd2fuUw1McMrz9 Directions: Head west on Thornhill St/Hwy 3/MB-3 W toward 6 St 1.2 km Turn right onto Mountain St N/MB-432 N Continue to follow MB-432 N 19.7 km Turn left onto MB-23 W (signs for Miami/Manitoba 23) 13.1 km Turn left onto Rd 37W 1.6 km Turn right 1.0 km Riter Hill Manitoba R0G 1H0 If you want to take a look at Hollyhock Hill Studio, check out there website @ https://www.hipcamp.com/en-CA/manitoba/brian-m-s-land-37/hollyhock-hill-guest-suite#group_size=6&adults=6 or go to their Facebook Page at: Hollyhock Hill Studio
