Guardian Angel Wool Relief Workshop. August 3, 2015
Learn how to create stunning needle-felted wool relief “paintings”. Features in these soft, fiber art pieces are raised in three dimensions off the surface of the “paintings” resembling marble sculptures off the façade of Italian Renaissance architectures. Barbed felting needles and natural wool fibers will be used to create these astonishing “paintings”. We will also be learning about and exploring the use of luxury fibers such as sparkly Angelina fibers, gleaming firestar, natural mulberry silk fibers and more to create a sensuous visual feast. No experience necessary. Visit Castle of Costa Mesa Etsy shop for examples of this work.

Guarded from harm
Cared for by angels
Here stand we
Loving and strong
Truthful and good.
We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another. ~Luciano de Crescenzo. Wool Relief Fiber Artwork by Jzin Teng, Castle of Costa Mesa.
What is Love? Love is: You, me and baby, safe underneath a piece of kelp. There is nothing more that I need.
Here is an intimate scene of a mermaid family sleeping together, protected by a large piece of seaweed. They are a young family with a new suckling baby mermaid at the young mermaid mother’s breast. They are fast asleep, full and content in the bliss of each other’s company. Private collection.
