Wool Art Painting Workshops  by Mara Effects 
Workshops are 3 hours from 3-6pm at Chrysalis Art Center, all materials included.
Session 1: Sunday, October 30th
Session 2: Sunday, November 13th
Session 3: Sunday, December 4th
Wool watercolor is an exceptional art where the piece is created by layering dry wool layer by layer onto fabric (not needle felting). This unique technique allows you to create stunning art with 3-D effect, keeping all secrets of creation under the glass. Under the weight of glass these complex layers of wool appear unbelievably vibrant and rich. Working with wool is a meditative process with therapeutic effects where small motor skills exercise, calm down, and relax the nervous system. During the workshop Maria will lead you step by step and help you finish this richly colored artwork- ready to hang! Choose any picture or painting to recreate in wool. Each workshop is separate so you may want to take two or three.
