hooked on felt

3-D felted pod and necklace

Recently I took a workshop in making felted sculpture from Andrea Graham, a renowned fiber artist in contemporary art and media. When I found out that she is teaching at Opulent Fiber, I signed up for two of her workshops.

The workshops covered techniques on wet felting, and needle felting wool to create whimsical forms of art. It was a fun and wonderful experience, and I am hooked!
