About the Course
Two Day workshop 10am - 4.30pm.
Suitable for all abilities. Includes all materials, coffee, tea, nibbles and lunch.
(Make it a Residential option for an additional £45 DB&B.)
I like to teach on a one-to-one basis, or, with just 2 or 3 people, so that I can give you my undivided attention.
Wet felting is often likened to 'painting with wool' because it allows for the artistic freedom and element of surprise similar to water colour painting.
Firstly, I'll show you how to make the basic felt or pre-felt using layers of natural wool fibres before moving on the gradual building up of layers of the picture.
I want you to feel inspired to create your unique landscape ideas using the wet felting technique to transform wool fibres and silks with soap, water and plenty of rolling into a memorable picture for you to frame or use as a wall hanging.
Discover a range of ways to depict an expressive landscape inspired by the beautiful surroundings of rural mid Devon in a small intimate workshop where the craft of felting evolves into an art form of its own. Feel free to bring along your own favourite photograph as inspiration! Reveal your inner creativity and picture making skills through the gentle laying down of fine Merino wool fibres and silk and allow the magical transformation of your handling of wool, water and soap to gradually take place.
I will help you take your felting skills to a new level, however great or small your previous experience. Absolute beginners also welcome as you arrive with an open mind, freed up and ready to learn!
