Felt Exploration, Sept 28th, Oct 5th @ 5:45pm
Date & Time: Tuesday, September 28th, October 5th, 5:45-8:30pm
Take time to dig into a more involved wet or needle felting project of your choice. If you are not sure what to work on I will provide some suggested projects at the start of the first class. The first session will be focused on wet felting to create pre-felts, sheets, or vessels, or building an armature and base shapes for a larger needle felted piece. We can also examine ideas for incorporating found objects into your felted piece. In the second session you can continue a wet felted piece, delve into refining forms and details on a needle felted piece, or embellish felt from the previous week with needle felting, embroidery, or beading. With a maximum of 4 students you will receive plenty of focused instruction.
Wet Felting Basics, Wet Felting Vessels, or Intro to Sculptural Needle Felting are recommended to take ahead of this course, however this class is accessible to new felters.
Basic felting materials are included in class cost. In week one we will go over any specialized or supplemental materials you may want to bring for week two.
Materials included: various colors of roving, core wool, felting needles, foam pads, trays, soap, bubble wrap, water containers, towels, embroidery floss, beads, wire
