ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Betty Hayzlett has been working with fiber ever since she was a little girl. Today she combines the making of handmade felt (made from raw, dyed wool) with weaving and other materials to make her art. She loves to play with visual contrast, and focuses on using rich colors and combining different techniques to create richly textured and colored surfaces on flat and three-dimensional forms.
