Dani Ives is a self-taught fiber artist and founder of Good Natured Art. Her inspiration comes from a love of nature and science. Over the course of a few years, Dani developed her distinct style of needle felting that she calls "painting with wool." With this style, instead of using paint and a brush, she uses wool fibers and a felting needle to create the effects of layering color, creating texture and depth. She strives to push the boundaries of this fiber art by creating animal portraits and botanical pieces that are packed with details and realism.
To see detailed photos of Dani's amazing work, see Dani Ives | Fiber Artist.
Join Dani Ives for this fun and super informative needle felting workshop! We’ll explore the art of "Painting with Wool" and learn lots of two-dimensional needle felting techniques that you'll be able to apply to your own tastes and style. Kits ($15 per student, paid to Dani day of) will include everything you need to finish multiple projects: felting foam pad, felting needles in two sizes, various fabric for backgrounds, a 6" embroidery hoop and lots of wool.
For details about the workshop, see the Programs page.
