Needle Felting | Live Demo
March 7 - March 9Free
Learn about the process of Lorraine Cathey’s beautifully felted portraits.
Each portrait is created with different colors of wool fibers. This dry felting technique uses wool roving and needles that push the fiber in place.
Once the image is complete, warm soapy water is applied and the agitation process begins. Agitation merges all the fibers tightly to form one solid piece of felt, shrinking the final piece about 20%.
Watch the process live from 10am-4pm in the lobby of the Folk Art Center.
