Pat Pawlowicz, fiber arts instructor, author, artist, and owner of Sparks! Creative Arts Studio tells The Rickie Report, “We are very excited to be able to offer Needle Felting Master classes for all level and abilities.  Even if you have never picked up a felting needle before, you will be immersed in this amazing art form.  Come, learn from the best!  Anna Potapova, internationally known and respected artist/instructor, will teach three intensive needle felting classes at our studio”.

Anna Potapova lives in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia and teaches world-wide. She is most famous for her charming dolls and animal figures.  Some of the techniques participants will learn include: gauging proportions, facial expressions, how to perfect density, blending wool to create new colors, and how to achieve a smooth flat surface on your creations. Classes are 9 hours, with breaks for snacks and lunch. All materials will be provided and are included in each class fee.

Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, in northeast Tennessee, Sparks! Creative Arts Studio is near airports, overnight accommodations, and restaurants.   The area is filled with history, art, and charm.  Browse the Local Artists Gallery on Main Street after a lovely meal at the historic Hales Springs Inn.  One of the oldest towns in the state, it’s surrounded by peaceful farmland, yet close to arts-centric Knoxville, TN and Asheville, NC.  The Biltmore Estate, Dollywood, The Allandale Mansion, Bristol Motor Speedway, Andrew Johnson National Historic Site, the Tennessee Hills Distillery, and the music center , Nashville are all just a drive away.

 Classes will be held at Sparks! Creative Arts Studio, the private work space of Pat Pawlowicz, arts instructor, author, and artist.  Her studio features a shop filed with needle felting and hand-weaving supplies plus one-of-a-kind artworks for sale.  This quiet location shares space with Pat’s fiber “flerd”.  A group of sheep are a herd and a group of goats is a herd, so Pat oversees her “flerd”.  She shears the wool herself, which she uses in her artwork and sells on line, at shows, and in her shop.  Pat teaches all over the country and internationally.

Classes begin at 10 am.  The classes are very limited in size, a non-refundable deposit of $25.00 per class is required at time of booking, the remainder due by April 1st. Cancellation after deadline will only be honored if your spot is filled.
