Sat 10 June 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
Learn how to 'paint' with fibres' to create a picture - abstract or realistic of a landscape or animal for a wall hanging or piece to frame. You will create your fibre painting using wool and a selection of yarns, fabrics and other fibres which you can later embellish with stitch and/or needle felting.
During the workshop we will
- Discuss how to create perspective, focal points, balance and composition
- Examine the landscape / animal images and/or sketches you bring along and discuss your design ideas
- Plan how to translate your design ideas into felt by selecting colour, material and techniques best suited
- Sketch & plan your landscape / animal ideas
- Create a landscape or animal painting in wool fibres to felt.
