Learn both wet and needle felting techniques, creating several small works to integrate technique and then discover how to incorporate both felting techniques to create beautiful wool-based sculptures, felted soap bars, dryer balls and even holiday ornaments or toys. You are limited only by your imagination, and no prior experience in art is necessary!

 Instructor Bio:

Christine enjoys nothing more than engaging others in the exploration and appreciation of art-making from materials not always considered media for creation. Thirty years as an art teacher and art therapist, she has taught in Montessori and public schools, psychiatric facilities, and museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and The New Britain Museum of American Art. In her own work, she derives inspiration from the amazing shapes of cast off steel, very much like one creates creatures from little snips of the clouds. Items and objects normally disregarded as trash and add to our landfills.become animals, people and objects of nature for everyone to appreciate.
