Fibre Art Class with Wendy
Felt making is a fibre art form that allows you to explore endless possibilities in surface design. In this class you will learn to layer fibres and add texture, creating an approximate 15”x15” collage that could be used as a wall hanging, cushion covers, centre piece etc.
10:00 Introduction to felting: a combination of instruction, demonstration & hands on work including these techniques: flat work, using resists, making balls, ropes, adding 3D texture.
12:00 Break for lunch
12:30 The afternoon will be spent creating a project using the techniques learned from the morning.
All felting supplies are provided. Each student will get a basic kit of colours to start with. As you build your surface design you will have the opportunity to choose added textures from Wendy’s ample stash of silks, locks, yarn and other bits and pieces.
Wendy will be roaming the room to guide you in your creations.
