Discover the incredibly fun process of turning wool into felt with textile artist Taylor Painter-Wolfe. Children will be inspired by the colors, shapes, flowers, and structures of Philbrook’s gardens, allowing their exploratory observations to guide the formation of their felted work of art. Using their sketches as guidance, children will agitate wool to become felted two-dimensional forms to create a fuzzy felted picture!

About the Teaching Artist: Taylor Painter-Wolfe
Taylor Painter-Wolfe is a fiber artist and art teacher from Tulsa, Oklahoma. She majored in fiber art at the Kansas City Art Institute where she learned how to make handmade, hand-dyed felted wool, which she used to create clothing, costumes, and fine art pieces. After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Art in 2003, Taylor traveled extensively in Australia and Southeast Asia which greatly influenced her development as a fiber artist and inspired her to use elements of texture, shape, and pattern found in natural environments.
