Felted OWLS Workshop at LOLA
October 16, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
In this workshop we will create 3-dimensional owls. Learn how to dry needle felt using special felting needles and wool fleece. This class will cover basic needle felting techniques as well as some advanced methods. Please join us in creating these wise birds in wool! Bring a bag lunch and beverage.
Mary Burns is an award-winning fiber artist, creating weavings that reflect the hues and patterns of the natural world. Her jacquard loom allows her to craft her work in great detail, vibrancy, and character. She also weaves custom-designed rugs and wall pieces in addition to felting, natural dyeing and eco-printing. Mary’s most recent project is the Ancestral Women Exhibit, which includes woven portraits of an elder from each of Wisconsin’s 12 Native tribes and 12 complimentary weavings. She teaches tapestry and other fiber art techniques. Mary and her husband John Bates lead wildflower, birding, and natural history hikes, paddles and discussions.
