Sharon Trent Teaches, Creatival

Sharon Trent teaches Felting at Creativ Festival.

Sharon Trent originally expressed her creativity through watercolour, pencil art, sewing and knitting. Owning Alpacas from Eight and Mud, alpaca farm and a mill has opened up her artistic side even more. As a fibre artisan she has developed skills in wet and dry felting and now believes that there is nothing you cannot do with fibre.

No previous felting experience necessary for all of Sharon’s classes!

Because the fibres are unspun, the rich lustre and texture of the silk is captured. Wet felt your mask using beautiful dyed silks, then add feathers, sparkles and other embellishments for that unique, flamboyant Mardi Gras look. Bring: Old towel, plastic bag, rubber gloves, apron, sponge, small bristle paint brush& a sense of celebration! Kit $25
