Join me at my rural studio in Ararimu, near Pukekohe, where you will find everything that you need to design your own unique wet felted artwork with three-dimensional elements, using a selection of New Zealand Merino and silk fibres, hand-dyed in a vast array of colours by my favourite boutique dyers.
I have a passion for exploring both the seen and the unseen depths of the landscape beneath our feet. I am excited to share this exploration with you as we look to images and memories of landscapes and rock formations for our inspiration. You will be invited to bring images with you, or to browse up the selection of material that I have prepared to spark up your creative imagination.
I will lead you step-by-step through the process from my centrally located demonstration table.
Planning your artwork and taking inspiration from the images that we share.
Discussion of colour choices and composition.
In this workshop, we will focus on the use of resists to add three-dimensional elements such as frills, flaps, cracks and cavities to the surface of a felted artwork.
Once you have the basics, you will be able to let your imagination run wild!
Prior felting experience is required for this project, or the previous "Wet Felted Fibre Art Workshop" on Thursday 18 March.
Class size will be limited to 4.
