Wool Painting (Dry) !!

  • Dry Wool Painting is a sweet and gratifying process, with limitless creativity for anyone who puts their hand and mind to it.   It's easier than you may think and with a little practice, you'll be doing it with speed and accuracy and will develop your own unique style.   Wool Painting is versatile, habit forming and they make great gifts for so many occasions.  We'll use kits in this beginner's workshop to get you going on the process, and to show you the materials you'll be using and to make a gorgeous finished piece.  If there's time, I'll show you how to get started on your own on a felt sheet with wool and the barbed needles as well.
