Felted “Painting” with Alyssa Kail
July 29, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Date: Saturday, July 29, 2023
Description: In this workshop, students will learn a felting technique known as nuno felting. We will incorporate pre-dyed pieces of silk organza into felted textiles using only warm, soapy water and our hands to create colorful abstract “paintings”. This technique can provide a lot of room for creativity, and each piece will be unique to the student’s color preferences and design choices. Students will leave with a 9”x12” mounted felt art piece, ready to hang on their wall at home.
Tuition: $95 + $20 materials fee
Materials: All materials will be provided.
Location: Contemporary Craft (5645 Butler St., Pittsburgh, PA 15201)
