Exploring Felted Form and Surface Texture
July 8, 2018 – July 14, 2018
During this workshop participants develop an expansive understanding of hollow form sculpting as well as techniques for introducing surface texture by way of fabric fusion and free-motion stitching. In a series of studies, you will explore wrapping 2-D resists in wool fiber and fabrics, and designing 2-D felt shapes that will allow for machine stitching prior to being hand stitched into 3-D forms. In addition to the shape of layout, students explore how juxtaposing different weights and densities of wool in a single layout and the direction of agitation can be used to further sculpt the felt. Experience laying out wool fiber for felting is recommended as well as physical stamina. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $525
