About the event

PLEASE NOTE: This session is full. To join a wait list and/or indicate interest in a future offering of this workshop, please email workshops@eastportartscenter.org.

The fourth of five Felt Fest workshops, this playful session teaches the art of creating 3-D forms from wool roving.  Participants will learn needle-felting techniques to make any critter or object they can imagine. It may be paired with the morning session, Sculptural Wet Felting,  for a discount!

Felting is a meditative and fascinating tactile process, and instructor Audra Christie has enjoyed exploring the huge range of applications of the medium. Her passion for fiber art has led her to felting hats and art objects, spinning yarn, and knitting and crocheting using wool from her own sheep. Her artwork explores ethics, craftsmanship, local culture, conviviality, and the essence of rural communities.

Needle Felted Critters is for ages 10 & up; ages 8-10 may participate with an adult helper. Fee is $15. Students may attend both July 10 sessions (Sculptural Wet Felting and Needle Felted Critters) for $30 plus a $10 materials fee. A sliding fee scale (pay what you can) is available by request. Space is limited; reserve below or by email to workshops@eastportartscenter.org. 

Felt Fest has been supported by the Belvedere Traditional Handcrafts Fund of the Maine Community Foundation.
