Barnsdale Gardens Winter Fox Felted Picture 10:30am-3:30pm
This class will focus on how to create a realistic fox. The morning will be spent wet felting a wintery landscape with merino wool, silk fibers and other textures. The afternoon you’ll learn how to needle felt a fox that is running or sleeping onto your landscape. The piece will be approximately 30 x 40 cm once felted. This workshop can be completed by beginners but it is more advanced than my regular felting workshops.
New for 2024: Classes will include Faffing with Fluff printed sheets so you can continue working on your artwork at home, plus a instructions for making wet felted pictures. You may also take a small bag of materials plus your needle home with you to continue working. Foam blocks will be available for sale plus bags of wool.
Please bring an apron, rubber gloves (for touching hot water) and small hand towel. All other materials will be supplied.
The workshop is 10:30am-3:30pm and will be held in the studio at the back of Barnsdale gardens. This is accessible from the carpark. Garden admission is not needed to come into the studio.
There will be a lunch break from 12:30-1:20 where you may eat in the cafe onsite or bring your own packed lunch.
£75 will include instruction and all materials.
This workshop is limited to 6 students, which allows for plenty of space between. This workshop will not be cancelled due to low attendance.
Please note there are no loos in the studio. The loos are located in a small building in the middle of the carpark, so please bring appropriate clothing if it’s raining or snowing.
