In this single session we will work step-by-step together on a mountain scene highlighting the subtle beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

For a thorough introduction to the tools, techniques and materials it is recommended to begin with an introductory workshop, however it is not necessary to complete this in-class project.

These include a kit for each student with a range of dyed wool roving in the project palette, felting needles, acrylic felt pinned to a foam block and printed materials outlining tools, fibers and resources.
