Mini Monets w/ Mom @ Averyboo Arts
Mother’s Day workshop included felting lesson, love, all materials, refreshments, framing, & commemorative photo for only $35 🙂

For Mother’s Day, we offered a unique workshop inspired by the Impressionistic style of Claude Monet. After a brief discussion about wool & Monet, each mother/child pair were given a starter kit, an inspiration photo and got to work….

Wool Roving

Wool roving in "Monet Garden" colors.

Create a base layer with plain wool, then begin layering the colored roving on top. A little goes a long way!

When your composition is complete, place inside a zip bag with warm soapy water (the warmest you can handle). Agitate for several minutes with your fingers and also by pressing with your hands. Try to keep the project flat. This step will "shrink" the wool & create one piece of felt.

Rinse out soap with warm running water. Roll up in a towel to squeeze out excess water, then lay flat to dry.

And there you go!
