Landscapes in wool - painting with fibres

X

About the Course

Learn how to 'paint' with 'fibres' to create a picture; abstract or realistic of a landscape or animal for a wall hanging or piece to frame. You will create your fibre painting using wool and a selection of yarn, fabrics and other fibres which you can later embellish further with stitch and/or needle felting. During the workshop we will;
*Discuss how to create perspective, focal points, balance and composition
*Examine your landscape/animal images & the sketches you have brought
*Plan how to translate your design ideas into felt
*Sketch & plan ideas (select colour & materials choices and selection of possible techniques to use)
*Create a felted landscape or animal image

Please note: Some knowledge of felt making is useful but not essential.
Bring along: you will need a selection of landscape / animal images and sketches to work from and any yarns, fabric or other material you'd like to include in your felted image.

Your tutor will be Emma Jackson, a felt maker with over fifteen years experience teaching, designing & making felt for her award winning textiles company, Silversoles. The workshop will take place in her home studio in South Birmingham with a small group of no more than four. Please note: the studio is situated at the bottom of a garden with one step up to access the building.

The workshop starts at 10am and runs until 4:00pm. Please get in touch for more information or to book your place.

I found the Landscapes in Wool workshop thoroughly enjoyable. Emma was very welcoming and has a lovely studio/workspace in her garden. From a photograph, I learnt about how to create perspective when felting and how to mix colours by carding. There was a wonderful range of colours to choose from. I found Emma an extremely good teacher. She gave clear instructions and provided help when required. I am a novice felt maker and realised how much there is to learn and discover in the world of felt making. I hope to go to another workshop sometime in the future.
