Two Day Workshops Saturday & Sunday
Join Colleen in her earth brick studio where you will hand form your own striking artwork from natural materials using the wet felt making technique.
This two-day Contemporary Felt Making Workshop is an opportunity to extend your individual creativity by learning how to apply design principles to felt work, making your designs cohesive and interesting.
Colleen will guide you on how to enhance your ideas by choosing colours that work well together, incorporating the techniques of resists, inlays or embellishments to create textures into the structure of the felt. There will be a generous selection of hand-dyed NZ merino wool, and luxury silk fabrics and fibres awaiting you.
The focus will be to create a wall piece of your own composition that is meaningful to you. There may also be an opportunity to try other ideas and techniques including three-dimensional felt making.
If you are ready to be challenged and inspired, then this workshop will give you an insight into what makes your work unique.
At the end of this small group workshop, you will have a finished piece for your interior along with many ideas for future projects.
Colleen holds an adult tutoring qualification, has exhibited her felt work nationally and internationally with her work purchased by private collectors worldwide.
