Handpaint Workshop

I always like handpainted dyeing because the outcome is always a bit of a surprise, but always still great!  Today some beautiful color combinations were used (I really should write some down so I can recreate them!).

Muffy Kashkin Grollier  will be at the Maple View Farm and Vernont Fiber Mill & Studio open house on July 21-22.  Visitors will be able to watch Muffy work and talk with her about her process.

Muffy has been an artist all her life. She works in a variety of mediums but discovered needlefelting at a class at Fletcher FarmSchool inVermontseven years ago. In the past few years she has been “painting” with wool using felted wool as a canvas to create paintings of flowers, animals, trees and fantasy. She also creates three dimensional dolls and characters.  Muffy will demonstrate her work and have examples available at the open house.  It’s pretty amazing!
