Ontario Handspinning Seminar
2D Felted Mixed Media
Learn needle felting on canvas with the addition of stitching and beads. You will learn that fibre is very versatile and can be used as the main subject on primed and painted canvas. Beading and stitching will enhance and add to the finished product. This class will expand the ideas of what is possible and will inspire the participants to take their ideas and run with them.

Megan has a passion for all things fibre and her love of knitting began at age 8. She learned to spin on an Ashford wheel after moving to a sheep farm in Australia in 1999 and she advanced her skills studying with the Canberra Hand Spinners Guild. Megan has taken many classes including a 4-day course with New Zealand spinner Margaret Stove, where she learned how to choose the best fibres for projects and how to design and knit lace.
Megan began to combine her love of portraiture and needle felting in 2008. Using wool and other fibres to create realistic portraits and landscapes has been a natural progression from watercolour and pastel with exciting results. Megan has recently started felting onto canvas after painting background details with acrylic paint. It allows the felt to shine and pop out of the piece.
