skill level: open to all levels.
This will be a very fast paced exploration of techniques for sculptural flowers with refined petal forms and delicate tendrils. Students will explore the use of layered materials to create detail and added strength on delicate forms. Each student will complete one flower and begin the layout for a second flower to be finished at home.
combine this with the 'texture' class September 20-21-22, 2019
Students will be given access to Kristy’s online classroom for creating the flowers. This includes the full tutorial, video demonstrations, and chat room for posting questions and sharing results. This is a fun way to stay connected with students and will be a very helpful refresher for working on the flowers at home!

- needlefelting and wetfelting
- finishing tight, smooth felt
- sizing and setting shapes
Additional topics of discussion:
- complex materials
