Craft Workshop Saturday 28th August 2021: Intermediate Wet Felting creating & using Pre Felt for 2D and 3D Fibre Art
Spend a day exploring the creation and use of pre felt in wet felt 2D and 3D fibre art.
Learning how to make and use pre-felt in your wet felt techniques is a great way to help sharpen your images when creating pictures, and will allow you to add elements with crisp outlines when making bowls, vessels, fibre art objects, and also in nuno felt designs too.
You will be creating pre-felt in colours of your choice to use in process of wet felting your project in the workshop.
You'll then use your pre-felt to create your picture design or 3D vessel/object, learning how to assemble and incorporate pre felts into your wet felted items.
As a 'bonus' in this workshop, we will also have opportunity to see how edge embellishments are created (eg ruffles, ripples, and tassels), how inclusions are incorporated (eg waves which come out of the picture, material pieces included for texture, etc), and felt 'rope' added for decor or for function (eg a bag handle or hanging loop).
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).
This class is suitable for adults in a group of 4 (maximum)
Price includes all the materials to make a 2D picture project or a 3D vessel or fibre art object. You will spend the first part of the day designing your project and then creating the pre felts which you will need. Then the second part of the day will be spent assembling and wet felting your project.
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.
