Cancelled – Needle Felted Landscapeswith Leah Cathleen
July 2 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
In this workshop with local fibre artist, Leah Cathleen, you will use a barbed needle and wool roving to create a landscape or flower picture. Along the way, you’ll learn about wool, wool processing and the correct usage of the materials and tools involved. Leah has been teaching felting for over 18 years and is excited to share her love of this unique art medium with you.
Barbara Leighton believed that every person could be an artist if they found the right medium… perhaps wool is yours. Join us to find out!

Artist/Instructor Biography: Leah Cathleen taught school field trips for over 11 years at the Leighton Art Centre. She left the LAC 12 years ago to start her own company- ArtFelt Studio – teaching exclusively felting. Her lessons explore both wet and needle felting.
“Watching someone work with wool for the first time, seeing their expression as their artwork takes shape, feeling their pride in their creation – these are powerful moments that I look forward to with every class I teach. I am energized by the creative force present in a felting class.”
