Instructor Bio: 
77 minutes

Join über-talented multi media artist Jennifer Field and learn how to create this whimsical felted and enameled flower brooches.

Jennifer is a master at color and material combinations.

Ms. Field will show you step-by-step how to form a domed copper flower center and then how to enamel the copper center piece in a color of your choice. And the color choices are endless!

Watch as she demonstrates basic wet and needle felting techniques to turn wool fleece into 3 dimensional flower creations that you can turn into a brooch or incorporate into your other jewelry creations.

Creating colorful fun pieces with a bit of felt and some enamel color is a great way to learn some basic techniques in both areas.

April showers “and Jennifer Field” will bring May flowers.
