Off to the gallery!

Heading over to Fountain Hills Artists Gallery this holiday weekend with three new felted friends in hand. If you're in the neighborhhood and looking for a nice way to spend the day, come on out and walk around the fountain in the early morning while the air is still wonderfully cool, grab a yummy breakfast at one of the cute restaurants across the street, then pop in the gallery to see all the delightful new creations made by local artists! I’ll be there all day Saturday, and look forward to meeting you.

The Basics of 3D Wet Felting (Free Download)

Hello, felting friends! We get a lot of questions at the gallery about my work such as: what exactly is wet felting?; what is the difference between wet and dry (aka needle) felting?; how are felted sculptures made?; etc. In response to these inquiries, I put together a flyer that outlines the basics of creating 3D forms using wool fiber, along with some care instructions. I thought readers might appreciate it too, so am posting a high-res file (.jpg) here for you to download, print, and share. Note: This is not a step-by-step tutorial, but rather an at-a-glance overview to 3D wet felting. I do have a step-by-step printable tutorial that I provide to workshop attendees, and plan to make available as a free download here soon. Enjoy and happy making!
