Felting project with Christine
This is Christine te Bogt. She is a grade 11 student who is doing a mentorship program with her art class at Horton High School in Nova Scotia. She has decided to create an art piece for the wall using techniques of felting, needle felting and other embellishment techniques such as beading and embroidery. I have been instructing her through the process and we're having lots of fun - she's fabulous and has a really great eye for detail! I can't wait to see her final creation, which she will also be presenting to her art class. This program is really great as it gives students the oppotunity to meet various artists within their region....and it also gives artists the opportunity to be in touch with the great learning minds of today!
