Join Jane Bardgett for a day of animal portrait felt painting
Learn how to paint with wool to create a beautiful animal portrait (do you have a favourite pet? Or love the Herdwick sheep?). You don’t need to be artistic or have Drawing skill, really! I have ways around this!
Come along and find out how the magic happens for an enjoyable, relaxing and some say quite therapeutic experience.
In this course Jane will teach you how to create a 2D needle felted picture. Not only will you take home an amazing animal portrait you also get to keep the tools you used, so you can do more at home.
Working from your own, or provided image, there will be a few provided by the tutor on the day. Jane will guide you through the tools & techniques needed to create your own beautiful felted picture.
You will begin by transferring your chosen image on to a lightweight hessian background to get an accurate outline of your image, then with Janes guidance you will be shown how to manipulate the fibres from laying out the initial colours to the beautifully intricate detailed effects to bring your animal to life.
Please note there is a £15 material fee paid directly to the tutor on the day, included in this is a set of tools for you to take home with you.
Jane is also running felt workshops on the following dates:
