Sculptural Needle Felting with STEPHANIE METZ

In this workshop, students will learn to use simple tools and methods to shape wool fibers into free-standing, solid felt sculptures. Topics include basic form-building, fine detailing, adding color, incorporating mixed media, and working with armatures. Class time will include slideshows, daily demonstrations, and one-on-one instruction with lots of hands-on work time. Please note that needle felting involves repetitive, physical hand and arm exercise.

All levels

Stephanie Metz uses fiber techniques to create tactile sculptural forms that investigate social connections and evoke a sense of wonder.

Awards include grants from the Belle Foundation, the Center for Cultural Innovation, and SVCreates. Prior teaching venues include Penland, Arrowmont, and Kala Art Institute.
