Focus on Workshop Instructor, Marlene Gruetter

Marlene Gruetter is a traditional feltmaker/artist and enjoys promoting one of the oldest forms of textile making to other fiber enthusiasts.  Marlene is from southeastern Ohio and is the owner of Marlene’s Felting Madness. 

Marlene has developed Shambolic felt™, a style/technique of feltmaking which incorporates fabrics and other embellishments in an intrinsic and fluid manner.  She loves texture and color and enjoys watching how the felting process itself creates unusual arrangements of texture and color.  The style of shambolic will often leave raw, rolling and uneven edges throughout the work giving it a unique natural look. 

On day one of the workshop, participants will learn both traditional and contemporary wet feltmaking techniques which will be used to provide depth and interest to their work.  On day two, students will learn how to lay out their project to create a beautiful shambolic work with dazzling arrangements of colors and textures and raw, rolling and uneven edges throughout.    

This class is for all levels of fiber artists.
