Painting with Plant-Dyed Wool

Monday, June 26, 2017 @ 8:00 am - Tuesday, June 27, 2017 @ 5:30 pm

This summer, immerse yourself in the beautiful craft of needle-felting!

Under the expert instruction of an established craftsperson and Waldorf educator, you will:

– Explore the art and technique of needle-felting
– Discover how to layer the surface and manipulate color, light, and texture
– Work with the natural, delicate beauty of plant-dyed wool
– Create your own wool painting, and bring home the know-how to continue this craft on your own

This 2-day workshop is open to educators, parents, artists, and others. No previous needle-felting experience necessary. All tools and materials will be provided.

Instructor Judit Gilbert is an accomplished fiber artist specializing in needle-felted wool pictures depicting fairy tales, using plant-dyed colors. Her artwork can be seen on her website, woolpictures.com. Judit is also a teacher at Green Meadow Waldorf School, where she is currently teaching fifth grade with the class she has been with since first grade. Previously, she taught in elementary schools in her birth country of Hungary, and helped launch a Waldorf school in her home town. She is also a trained eurythmist who has performed with the Eurythmy Spring Valley ensemble. Judit did her undergraduate study at the Theological University of Szeged (Hungary); earned a certificate in Waldorf Education from Emerson College (UK); a Eurythmy diploma from Eurythmy Spring Valley; and a BA in Eurythmy Education from University College of Eurythmy in Oslo, Norway.
