‘A Portrait to a Landscape – A Different Approach to Wet Felting’.
In this workshop you will learn a different approach to wet felting and in doing so you will develop a better control of lines, shapes and colours.
Two felt paintings will be created using prefelt as the canvas, a felt needle as a brush and fibre as a paint.
You will create a female portrait in fancy headwear that will assist with combining precision freedom and creativity.
The second work will be a landscape with emphasis on texture and colour.
Merino wool will be utilised as the main material, and accents of colour will be added with silk. A variety of framing methods will also be discussed.
Skill level – intermediate.
