Using a basic wet felting techniques which will be introduced in class, we will each explore making our own designs using composition, color, texture, and abstraction. Hand-made felt is a medium that allows one to add, subtract, mold, stitch, and paint: we will tap into this versatility to create a personal, narrative compositions. Please feel free to bring flat found objects both natural and man-made – twigs, feathers, toy parts, metal and wood scraps to share with the class and to add to your composition. Although each participant will create his/her own design, I highly encourage the participants to brainstorm and share feedback with the group.

Class Level – Beginning

Class Age –  18+

Jennifer Kim Sohn has exhibited her work widely in New York, Maryland, and California. Her work for Biodiversity/Extinction through the Art & Science Collaborations showed in the New York Hall of Science, The Pennington School, and in online exhibits for the Queens Chronicle and the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation. Juxtaposing “domestic” techniques such as embroidery and paper felting against challenging issues of our time, her goal is to provide a quiet, unhurried space for reflection on and digestion of these pressing issues. Jennifer studied design and received her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University and her MFA from Stanford University. Her fiber work began after taking classes with Carol Beadle. She is a resident artist at Verge Center for the Arts in Sacramento.
