This workshop is designed for people who would like to learn wet felting techniques by playing with lots of different textures and techniques. I teach the instant gratification of felting which makes this all day workshop mostly about being creative with many different types of materials and a little bit about felting them together. Create a background with many layers of colourful Merino wool, silks, leaves, threads and more. Felt the piece into a large square or rectangle and then learn needle felting techniques to add small details.
Bring pictures for inspiration if you would like but I will have lots to inspire you. This class will include a printed sheet with instructions on how to make more at home plus supplies will be available to purchase after the workshop for discounted prices.
A full day workshop to explore colours and textures of wool and silk to create a large felted woodland picture. Spend the morning adding layers of colours and textures and the learn how to agitate the fibres to felt them together. This workshop is mainly wet felting and there may be a small amount of time at the end for needle felting.
This class is located in the Art Room upstairs in Stamford Arts Centre. 45 min lunch break will be taken midday. Bring a pack lunch or walk into town.
