Fiber: Beginning Felt Making

October 5@9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

$45

There’s so much talk about felt making nowadays. Ever wonder what it’s all about? In this workshop you’ll find out as we create a beautiful landscape entirely out wool! All you need is a little water, wool, soap, and some agitation to make a beautiful piece of art suitable for framing or as a decorative piece for your home. We’ll learn wet felting techniques and then use felting needles to do detailing on our pieces. Please bring scissors, a couple of old towels, and a magazine picture or photo that you might want to work from. This is a “hands on” workshop so come prepared for some great felted fun!

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Sandi Cirillo has been a fiber/mixed media artist for over 25 years, specializing in creating artwork which pleases the eye and craves to be touched. The inspiration for her work focuses on the textural qualities of humanmade and natural fibers which she incorporates into her artwork. Her work reflects her love of traveling throughout Maine where she lives and her appreciation of the natural environment around her. Sandi also creates solar plate etchings on both paper and silk fabric. Sandi is a retired art educator who gives many different fiber workshops in the Northeast and North Carolina. She has taught undergraduate and graduate courses at Alfred University and Nazareth College in New York State. She currently teaches drawing, fiber, and art history classes at Senior College in Belfast, Maine. She also teaches in Damariscotta, Bucksport, Hancock, and North Carolina. She exhibits her work locally and nationally and her artwork is in many private collections. Sandi lives in Searsport, Maine where she has her studio and where she teaches many different workshops which are listed on her website.
