About the Course
Interpret a special landscape or view into a beautiful felt panel. Bring along a photo of a special place or holiday; up in the mountains, a beautiful beach, whatever floats your boat! Or choose from one of our ours. Learn to blend colours and enjoy the wet felting process. You will work on 2 pieces; an A4 flat panel based on an A4 landscape or sunset and a second piece that works with resists and introduces texture and 3D elements to a picture. No prior experience needed.
Hazel Macfarlane trained as an architect and life took her from Glasgow to the Lakes via Norway, London and Germany. She discovered felting in Germany in 2002 and was fascinated with this amazing medium and the huge number of possibilities it offers just using wool fibres, soap, water and your hands (oh, and not forgetting a bit of muscle strength!). She started out using YouTube to understand the process and has since enjoyed a year of City and Guilds and the input of many other teachers both in Germany, the UK and Holland. She is fascinated by the textures that can be achieved and also the sculptural nature of the material. Hazel also loves the very tactile quality of felting and although the outcome can be planned it is never certain, which makes each project a journey of discovery.
This workshop will be at Cowshed Creative, based in a traditional converted Lakeland barn at Browfoot Farm. The art studio is a stunning open plan space with plenty of room to wander outside and take inspiration from the amazing Lakeland landscape and environment of the peaceful Kentmere valley. Make it a special break and stay on the farm on one of our luxury camping pods.
All our tutors are carefully selected professionals and experts with extensive teaching experience. Whilst this is a new venture, George, who has set up Cowshed Creative, has many years of experience programming and running creative courses at the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal and for Cumbria Adult Education. .
