Olga Finkel workshop – Painting with Felt – Report

Olga Finkel Workshop – Painting with Felt

Olga studied fashion design in the Ukraine and became a hat- maker when she moved to Melbourne, specialising in hats for the Melbourne Cup.


At our workshop Olga taught her own technique of painting with felt.

She prepared a detailed drawing from a photo which she transferred  onto the “felt  canvas” by means of paper stencils.


All the initial painting was done by needle felting and only wet felted when she was happy with the final painting. The end result was  a true likeness of the original.
























The participants went home with a completely different skill which will be used to great advantage. It was a fun two days , enjoyed by all.

Thank you Olga.
