Workshops!: Learn To Paint With WoolRegister now
Welcome! My name is Carolyn and I am a wool painter and needle felter living and art making in St. Jacobs, a small village west of Toronto, Canada.
I welcome you to explore my site and revel in the vibrance and visual texture of this special fibre.
I'd like to tell you about my Learn To Paint and Draw With Wool classes offered in my beautiful St. Jacobs studio. I'm also very excited to introduce my first guest artist ever - Inna Zhereshchina will be teaching a class November 25 - making a scarf!
Beyond offering my own classes, I have some exciting workshops lined up with guest artists in the new year. Check them out and register early so you don't miss out!
Wet and needle-felted art often create reactions of wonder in people. Even though wool has been used literally since antiquity by many cultures for clothing, decor and art, it is still not recognized widely for its modern use in art. From the whimsical to majestic, to the fashionable to the functional, wool is versatile, exciting and gorgeous.
Make sure you sign up for my newsletter (don't worry - I'm not a spammer!) to stay in touch. And of course, never hesitate to drop me a line.
I am so happy to present my wool paintings and table runners. These pieces of art are created through the process of wet felting using the most beautiful colours of sheep's wool roving.
It is accurate to call these 'paintings', as I use my hands like a brush and the wool like paint to create strokes, accents, depth and blending to create the effects I want.
As a fibre artist, I'm excited to be on this amazing learning journey with wool and hope that you will love looking through my site. If you are interested in commissioning me to do a piece, please contact me directly.
