place QWSG Studio 744 Primrose Street, Qualicum Beach, BC, Canada expand_more

Date and Time: Saturday April 20, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.  (Half hour break for lunch)

Wet Felting with Darrell Giraldeau - Come and explore the art of wet felting and create a small approx. 8”x 10” or two 4”x 5” garden scene(s) embellished with silk and other fibres.  This could be then be framed or mounted on a card at home. Learn the basics of wet felting and adding embellishing fibres to create a scene.  Embroidery can be added after the felt is dry to create texture and dimension.

Instructor:  Darrell Giraldeau is a fibre artist from the Oceanside area.  She is a retired early learning specialist who taught children and adults. While she has been working with fibre for many years, her passion for wet felting blossomed once she retired from her professional life and relocated to Vancouver Island in 2018.  She finds her inspiration from the beauty and colours of nature. She enjoys the unpredictability of wool as a medium and the surprising effects that can be achieved by incorporating other fibres in the felted pieces. Darrell’s art is carried at the MAC in Parksville and the Salish Sea Gallery in Bowser.  She has instructed classes privately, for the MAC (where she’s a regular artist-in-residence), the 100 Mile Fleece and Fibre Fair, at the Berwick, and for the Qualicum Weavers and Spinners Guild.
