About the Instructor:
Sue Carey first started raising sheep 30 years ago and became interested in using her sheep’s fiber for needle felting over 20 years ago. Being a fiber artist and shepherd, are two passions that integrate extremely well with the sheep’s wool providing raw material for her artistic endeavors. As a shepherd, she has gained extensive knowledge of wool including proper ways of nurturing, genetics, handing, and processing. A Bachelor of Science in Biology helps with the visual creation of realistic birds and animals. She enjoys experimenting with different techniques to craft her unique sculptures. Sue teaches her style of felting throughout the Northeast.
