Felt picture making workshop in Rugby!

Description

Join me at my Beginners Felt Picture Workshop to learn how to create a beautiful picture of your own using merino wool! On this half day workshop you will be taught how to lay down the merino wool fibres and build up the image and how to mix colours by carding. I will then take you step by step through the wet felting process. You will leave with your own felt picture which you can further enhance at home with stitching if you wish. Half way through we will take a short break for coffee and home made cake. Workshops are suitable for beginners or those who already have some experience of felting. All other felt picture making workshops are run throughout the year at The Barn in Houlton, Rugby close to Junction 18 of the M1. This is a beautiful community centre with lots of space and light, right next to the lovely Tuning Fork café, perfect for lunch before! There is plenty of free parking. The venue is all on one level, so suitable for wheelchair users. Small groups ensure plenty of individual attention (max 6 people per class) If you get a small group of your friends together, I am also happy to arrange a date to suit you - ideal for birthdays, ladies groups, hen nights and other celebrations! ‘What a truly enjoyable time was spent with Karen learning how to felt! From beginning to end the tuition was excellent, interspersed with laughter and cups of tea. Such a pleasing, tactile product to create! New skills learnt, advice given for further enhancement of the piece. Time and money truly well spent!’ Gail, May 2017 On the day, please bring with you an old medium sized towel and a plastic bag to take your damp towel home in.

Maker


I am a Contemporary Felt Artist living and working in the Midlands. I create vibrantly colourful textile pictures, hand crafted using traditional felting techniques, combined with free machine embroidery and hand stitching. In my pictures I use a combination of wet felting, needle felting, free machine embroidery and hand embroidery to create impressionist style paintings.
