About the course
Learn how to create this adorable fiber art little town wall hanging! You’ll use wool felt, wool, embroidery floss and beads to create this whimsical scene. Paulette will show you how to transfer the house pieces to freezer paper to cut them out, how to assemble and decorate each house and building and ideas to personalize them. Then you'll have the fun of putting the town all together just how you want it. She will demonstrate some basic embroidery stitches you can use, or add your own favorites. We will then add the extra trims you want, like the little clothes line, the kite, clouds, and more. Choose to make your town scene at day or night, and vertical or horizontal. When it’s all finished, Paulette will show you a couple different ways to finish your tiny town and get it ready to hang on your wall. Your completed tiny town will be approximately 14 x 18 inches plus the fabric border.
About The Instructor
I love to make things. I'm fascinated when I see some new kind of craft I haven't yet discovered, and usually want to give it a try. Needless to say, I have a home and studio rather overflowing with art and crafting supplies of all kinds. Aside from creating things, I love teaching others to create things as well! Nothing gives me greater pleasure than getting someone without any hobbies, hooked on something brand new to them.
For about as long as I can remember, I have been making things. In the art field, I do a lot of colored pencil art, watercolors and pastels. I also quilt, do all kinds of needlework, and I love to weave. All kinds of weaving, from multi-shaft floor looms to pot holders! I've been weaving for close to 40 years, and have helped numerous people to get started in the rewarding field of weaving.
Then there is the area of polymer clay - I have countless things from polymer clay, including over 2,000 dolls and an entire city street with buildings and apartments for them to live in. Polymer clay is amazingly versatile, since there is really no limit to what can be made from it, and I never tire of trying new things. As long as there are crafting supplies around, I'll keep making things with them!
I have won numerous awards, for polymer clay creations, colored pencil artwork and watercolors.
I wrote several books on making polymer dolls, painting crafts, and selling crafts.
I teach several classes in fiber arts at our local art center, including inkle loom weaving, bead weaving and felt applique.
