Wet Felted Landscape Hanging

£60.00

Description

Use the techniques of wet and needle felting, along with hand and freehand machine embroidery to create an A3 landscape hanging.  You can also add embellishments and other textiles to really make this creation your own.

In this wet felting workshop students will learn the basic technique of creating felted fabric from wool roving (unspun sheep’s wool). Over the course of five hours we will cover the theory of felting, the equipment needed, choosing and laying the wool roving, and finally the techniques used for felting and fulling the piece. Through this workshop you will gain the skills necessary to wet felt by yourself at home.

You will:

– Learn a little about the felting properties of different types of wool fibres.
– You will understand the felt making process.
– You will introduce simple elements of pattern, colour and design into your felt making using the wet felt and needle felt methods.
– You will learn how to add texture and incorporate found objects to create interest and add to your design.
– We will use hand embroidery and also freehand machine embroidery to embellish.

You will finish the day with a beautifully decorated piece of artwork ready to hang up.

Please bring lunch and refreshments will be provided as well as all materials.
