June 3 - 9, 2018 Unlocking the Wool: Sculptural Felting
In this class, both needle-felting and wet-felting techniques will be employed to create solid three-dimensional objects with an emphasis on form and color. Using wire, found objects and wool itself as armature, students interested in creating dynamic sculpture will explore their own designs. Wool varieties, tools, surface design and finishing techniques will be covered. Needle-felters wanting to try wet-felting or vice versa are encouraged to attend though all skill levels are welcome. Note: Both techniques require repetitive arm & hand motion.
July 6, 7, 8, 2018 Sculptural Felting: Soft and Sensational
Early Bird Registration through May 25, 2018 with a 10% discount: Register Here.
This workshop will focus on the interplay of wet-felting and needle-felting techniques to produce soft sculpture. We will utilize the plasticity of the wool itself to build complex and dynamic forms, which will be needle-felted and then given a wet-felt finish. In addition, students will learn to make wet-felted pre-felt sheets, surface design elements and finishing techniques. No previous felting knowledge is required, but those students who already know one technique are encouraged to delve into the other. Demonstrations and structural problem solving will lead to independent exploration by the students. Please note that both techniques require repetitive arm and hand motion.
