The class is in Debra's studio, which is in a bright, inspirational and spacious old church. You will learn how to create stunning pieces of textural felt art, using a wonderful selection of merino wool (over 120 colours), silks of all kinds and colours, different breeds of wool as well as other fibres. Debra is extremely generous with her materials and skills and will introduce you to every imaginable way of incorporating different textures and processes into your art work.
You will come away with at least two, usually 3 pieces of work, where you will experiment and understand how fibres go together in the process of felt making. Every one is always amazed at the standard they achieve in such a short space of time and it is always in an atmosphere of fun and abundant creativity. Debra has taught over 2000 students many of whom are now successfully exhibiting their art.
You can be a complete beginner to art or an established artist in other mediums, all are accomodated in this class. If you have special needs please contact Debra as she has many years of experience in working with disabilities and her studio is serviced by a disabled lift and toilet facilities.
