Using felting needles and a variety of fleece tops, woollen fabrics, fibres and yarns, you will learn how to create rich two dimensional surfaces and small three dimensional forms, exploring the medium's potential for achieving both sculptural and painterly items. Experimenting with a variety of base fabrics and pre-felts, and with the addition of hand stitch and beadwork embellishment, you will be helped and encouraged to create a range of sample areas, as well as going on to develop an individual project, such as a small bird or animal form, corsage, beaded jewellery, picture, or surfaces for greeting cards.
There will be numerous demonstrations and examples shown, of different ideas and techniques during the course, such as lettering, decorative repeat patterns, building up of relief surfaces, attaching features and body parts, using armatures, and combining the medium with other processes.
The emphasis is both experimental and creative, and the aim is for you to have lots of ideas to take away with you at the end of the day.
The course is highly suitable for beginners, as well as those with a little more experience.
