Craft Workshop Saturday 21st August 2021: Intermediate Wet Felting with Resists for 2D and 3D Fibre Art
Spend a day exploring wet felt intermediate resist techniques for both 2D and 3D fibre art.
We will be creating a complex resist for you to set into layers of fibres during the felting process. When you reveal the areas of the resist at the end of the felting process, the layers of felt colour will be exposed and textures revealed, and so your resist pattern will emerge.
We will also create book resists which you will use to construct a vessel or fibre art object. This is a truly amazing technique for creating 3D shapes and, along with the shaping of the felt during the process, opens a world of possibilities as a technique for wet felted fibre art.
Embellishments such as beads can also be sewn on my hand or embroidery stitched to add texture and details, although this will most likely need to be added after the Workshop so we can focus on the wet felting techniques during this session.
This is a truly creative felt-making day, suitable for people who have a small amount of wet felting experience. (We have introductory workshops for the fundamentals of wet felting - please ask if you are unsure which workshop would be the most suitable for you to attend).
Maximum Workshop: 4 People
Time: arrive for 10am start - finish 4pm
Venue: Craft Workshops, Grassroots Garden Centre (separate studio within the grounds), Stalbridge Road, Henstridge BA8 0SA
Price includes all the materials to make a 2D complete resist project piece plus a book resist 3D vessel or fibre art object.
Everything you need for this workshop will be supplied except an apron which you may like to bring or please wear clothes suitable for crafting.
Wet-felting can be quite physically hard work so help is always available if you should need or want some extra oomph! and we adapt how we work to be fully inclusive.
You may want to do more work on finishing your fibre art felt pieces after the workshop.
Hot and cold drinks are available throughout the session. Please bring lunch, snacks and any other refreshments which you would like.
