Painting with Fibres (Felting) - Intro(B) Instructor: Janet Tulloch
Create a landscape or still life with felt and other fibres using wet and dry felting techniques. On day 1 (6h), participants will create their "canvas" using an already prepared "prefelt" as background adding different colours of roving onto the background to produce the general forms for your artwork. On day 2 (3h), participants will do needle felting and simple stitching (by hand) for detail. Some materials included. This workshop is similar to the one Moy McKay gave in October 2018 for Wabi-Sabi but far less expensive!!!

The Grand National Committee and the Portage & District Arts Centre, Manitoba invite quilt and fibre artists from across Canada to participate in their 2019 thematic exhibition "STILL".
The committee challenges you to create a piece using the theme "Still". For example, your piece could celebrate the longevity of a place, event or idea; demonstrate the ability of an object to be motionless; slice out a millisecond of time in which a continuously moving object can be viewed as frozen in time or let your imagination interpret this theme some other way.
Entry submission Deadline – Saturday, April 13, 2019
