Online Workshop: Needle Felting with Emily Jan

Join artist Emily Jan for an online workshop that will introduce participants to the materials and techniques used in needle felting. Participants will learn how to make a small felted sphere as well as miniature figures inspired by the natural world.

Emily Jan is an artist and writer born in San Francisco, California, and currently situated in Montreal. She holds an MFA from Concordia University, an Honours BA from Brown University, and a BFA with High Distinction from the California College of the Arts. Jan has travelled to 35 countries and lived in four, including South Africa and Mexico. As a wanderer, naturalist, and collector of objects and experiences, she is guided in her work by the spirit of exploration, kinship, and curiosity. Emily works with materials such as wood, reed, cloth, silicone, and resin to create hyper-realistic installations of found objects inhabited by both handmade and found flora and fauna.

All materials will be provided to participants in Canada if registered by October 7; otherwise participants will have to provide their own materials for the workshop as we cannot guarantee delivery before the workshop date. A list of materials will be provided.

All levels of experience are welcome. Class size is limited. You will receive an email with the Zoom meeting access link prior to the event.
