SVP Studio
San Jose, California

Finally, a class right here in San Jose! I'll be teaching out of my studio at the School of Visual Philosophy, so I can show you some finished pieces and works in progress as examples of the techniques you are learning.

"You may know that felt is a non-woven textile made of wool, but have you considered its sculptural possibilities? Instructor and resident studio artist Stephanie Metz will teach you her innovative approach to working three-dimensionally with felt. Learn all about the tools, techniques, and possibilities of needle-felting while you complete a small project (or more). This two-day workshop is appropriate for the total beginner as well as those who have some experience with felting. From form-building to armatures and finishes, class includes hands-on practice, demonstrations, discussions, and slides. Note: needle felting involves repetitive and vigorous hand and arm movement. Open to all skill levels. Materials fee covers wool, felting needles, and a foam rubber work surface.  Additional tools will be available for use and/or purchase."
