2- Day Workshops for 11-14 Year Olds -

July 11 & 12:   Harry Potter Inspired Painted Rocks, Mornings, 9:00-12:30 pm
Aug 1 & 2:   Needle Felting, Afternnons 1:30-5:00 pm
Ages:   11 - 14 year olds
Cost:   2-day workshops $90 each, all materials included
Rocks become our canvas for this two-day workshop. We’ll use acrylics to paint Harry Potter inspired images surrounded by a series of dots. These rocks are so much fun to paint – you choose the size you want to work with. It’s possible to spend the entire time painting one carefully detailed rock or you can choose smaller rocks and paint several. The studio with be filled with witchcraft and wizardry, potions, owls, scarves, quidditch, lightening bolts, and round spectacles – endless options to paint.
We’re dedicating these two days to how to needle felt with wool, special barbed tools, foam blocks, and a supply of Band-Aids (just in case fingers get poked). Needle felting is amazing – the tool locks the wool in place. You’ll magically transform a cloud of fiber into shapes and forms creating animals and characters. We’ll have samples and suggestions to help inspire you. This is a fun technique that anyone can learn and love.
