Class Description from Lisa
"This class focuses on a skill set for articulating shapes and creating repeating patterns on felted surfaces. Partial-felts (also known as pre-felts, but different than a needle felted batt) is the term I use for felting fibers into a 2-D sheet for the purpose of cutting shapes to be felted into a background of loose fleece. Depending on the initial thickness of the sheet layout, the amount of felting/fulling that occurs before the shape application and the thickness of the fleece background an unimaginable range of effects can be achieved. Learn to control shape edge quality, background color bleed and surface dimension while experimenting with color gradations, shape spacing and movement of pattern based on shape design and rotation. Free-motion machine embroidery can then be applied to the felt to further define shapes, gather thin felt to accent dimension and crater thick felt to create an embossed effect."
