Have you ever wondered how those amazing felted pictures are created? And wondered if you could ever do some thing like that? Well the answer is yes you can!
Come along and find out how the magic happens for an enjoyable, relaxing and some say quite therapeutic experience.
In this workshops you will be given step by step instructions & demonstrations on how to create a beautiful Botanical Picture (images & photos will be provided, please bring any of your own too)
Using soft merino wools like a paint palette you will add other exciting fibers to build interest and texture throughout your work, you will progress onto the manipulation of fibers to produce your final floral image which will then be “Wet Felted” to bind everything together and create a wonderful felted picture for you to take home.
The course will cover:
- Understanding the qualities of wool fibers
- How to consider colour, light, composition & movement in your picture
- Blending, layering and adding texture using wools, silks and Angelina fibers
- Working with loose fibers to create structure and form
- Learning the “wet felting” process using soap, water & agitation to bind fibers together
Please bring with you an old towel and plastic bag (your wet picture will still be wet)
Please note there is a £15 material cost payable to the tutor on the day.
