Have fun in this half day workshop "painting" with wool. Using colorful wool roving for your paint and lovely wool fabric for your canvas, we'll make a small banner of sheep ( finished size 12” x 9”)  in the spring pasture. The background of this  banner has a watercolor effect, while the sheep are rather folk art inspired.

If you would prefer the sheep to look more like those you have on your farm (or in your dreams!), bring along some cleaned fleece from your wooly friends to use in the banner. We'll add hanging rings on the back so your project will be complete at the end of the workshop. 

The skills learned in this fun workshop will allow your imagination to run wild in your own creations!

Students from novice to expert are welcome.

Materials Information

Bring to Class:  scissors, a sewing needle, a few straight pins, a school ruler, a piece of upholstery foam 8” x 8” x 1 ½” deep or larger.
