Workshop-banner2And at last some new workshops dates! ūüôā

I offer a one or two-day workshop creating Felted Landscapes and will take you through the creative steps and the wet felting techniques I use when creating my own artwork.

Each participant works from their chosen starting point such as a photograph, sketch, magazine tear, etc to inspire their piece. Gradually you will develop your artwork applying wool fibres, silk threads, fabrics inserts as you would paint. At the end of the course, you can can expect to take away with you a finished felted piece, which can also be further embellished if you so wish to.

All the necessary materials and equipment required are provided, along with lots of photos and magazines for inspiration. Workshop groups tend to be no larger than 10 participants maximum, so I can provide 1:1 guidance throughout the day.

You do not need any previous experience of felting, just a desire to delve into your creative inner self (and we all have one, just need a nudge to find it sometimes!). Come and join me if you can.
