2D Needle Felting Portrait
Time: 9:30 am – 1:30 pm
Learn the finer points of Needle felting a 2D portrait. Explore the
techniques and blending needed to create a realistic portrait. Students will create a portrait
from the very beginning of transferring the picture onto the background fabric and then learn
the steps in creating the picture. We will be creating a sheep portrait using the breed's wool
as the feature.

Instructor: Megan Cleland
Megan has a passion for all things fibre. Living on a sheep farm in Australia for 10 years
taught her to appreciate good quality wool. She moved back to Canada in 2008 and decided
to combine her love of portraiture with wool, alpaca and other fibres to create realistic
animal and people portraits. She has taught others to embrace this form of needle felting.
Her students enjoy their workshops and leave with the ability to continue on their own
journey with the knowledge of how to blend colors and work with different fibres to create a
unique work of art. Robert Bateman critiqued The lioness and said it was a “tour de force,
and looked 3D with masterful eyes” .
