LangFlowersFelted Flowers
with Chris Lang

Wednesday, March 4
6–8 p.m.

Prepare for spring with colorful wool flowers!  You’ll learn a wet felting technique, transforming loose wool roving into flower shapes. You’ll finish with a wooly bloom to use as a pin, jewelry or fiber sculpture. Beginning to advanced felters are welcome.

Central Ohio artist and sheep farmer Chris Lang started experimenting with wool 35 years ago when her family acquired sheep for 4-H projects. She began with different fiber techniques,  including wet and needle felting.  Inspired by her rural environment, Chris spends many hours combining the textures and colors of hand-dyed wool fibers to create her felted wall hangings and sculptures. See more on Chris’ art here.

$15 for members, $18 for non-members, includes all supplies. Registration begins January 23.
