Sunday 15 March 2020, 11:30am - 5pm (£50 for 1 day)

Suitable for beginners and for those continuing from previous courses, as the tutor will tailor the material to individual participants.

Programme

During the workshop, Catherine will guide you through two exciting, hands-on feltmaking projects.

For the first project you will create a wall art piece (approximately 30cm x 30cm) to decorate your home or as a beautiful hand made gift. Catherine will show you techniques to create a landscape, a floral scene or something more colourful and abstract.

The second project will be 3D felt as Catherine guides you through the process of making a flower shaped decoration. Beautiful as a gift, you can choose to add a hair pin clip, a brooch back or decorative leaves. Time permitting, a series of flowers can be made!

In both projects, you will learn the ancient Scandinavian skill of wet felt-making. A magically creative process, merino wool and exotic fibres and yarns such as silks, camel down, linens and mohair are arranged carefully into a design before water and olive soap are applied to the surface. Friction from your hands alone will transform the fibres into a textile which has a uniquely organic look and feel.

Choose from over 40 shades of merino wools and special pre-mixed blends or learn how to blend your own with carders. You will also learn how to apply silk and cotton fabrics n a 'NUNO' felting style. Catherine will show you basic hand embroidery to decorate your artwork before helping you assemble to a hanging rod (embellishment can be stuck down for anyone who prefers not to stitch). There will be plenty examples and ideas to guide you along in this process.
