This workshop will focus on the interplay of wet-felting and needle-felting techniques to produce solid three-dimensional objects with an emphasis on form and color. Using wire, found objects and wool as armature, students interested in creating dynamic sculpture will explore their own designs. Wool varieties, tools, surface design and finishing techniques will be covered. Demonstrations and structural problem solving will lead to independent exploration and personalized skill sets. No previous felting knowledge is required but those students who already know one technique are encouraged to delve into the other. Note: Both techniques require repetitive arm and hand motion.
COURSE FEE: $600
