An intro to wet felting pictures workshop. In this workshop Liz gives participants all the basic information and skills to learn the technique of wet felting. Create your very own artwork from dry wool fibres, silk fibres, knebbs, yarns and much more.Felt is surprisingly strong and no two pieces will ever be the same, this is the time to embrace your creativity and add your personal mark. This method of felting uses soap, warm water and agitation to tangle fibres together to create felt. In approximately 6 hours you will explore making your own artwork, you will be guided through choosing colours and textures and the wet felting process. You do not need any prior experience and you will be provided with all the necessary materials and equipment to use on the day.
What's included in the price?
All materials, equipment and tuition to support and guide you through the process of wet felting using traditional hand rolling techniques. You will be guided through laying out your design, choosing colours and textures, mixing wool to create different shades and then the wet felting process. We also look at how to further enhance your work with embellishments such as beads, silks, yarns and embroidery to add further surface texture and detail. You will take away the work you produce on the day plus notes for reference later. Tea, coffee and a light lunch provided by Shirley . Liz is a feltmaker / fibre artist with a love of colour and texture. Focusing on traditional feltmaking techniques, her work combines art with a love for making wearable, useable items. Whilst embracing the dexterity of working with fibre, she finds transforming a sheep’s fleece into fabric endlessly fascinating. With a love for making, her inspiration and motivation is defined by strong colour combinations and colour blends. Using hand dyed wool, silks and hand spun yarns allows her to add fine detail to her pieces, which are characteristic of artisan felted work.
