FeltWEST is delighted to offer this workshop with Pam Hovel
During this workshop expect to create a variety of visually exciting 3D sculptured felted vessels each with elements of earthy beauty.
You will learn how to make a template to suit your chosen form and how to construct sturdy, well finished and unique vessels.
Students will experience a range of techniques for embellishment, drawing on inspiration from the natural world. We will explore many elements of surface design such as cracked surface, rusting/ patina, lamellae, tiny ball clusters and sculptured texture giving an earthy but elegant finish to each piece.
After learning the basic technique of constructing a 3D form, students will be encouraged to develop their own, unique vessels using one or more of the techniques covered. Three to four vessels could be completed in the 3 days, although this depends of the complexity of the design. I encourage people to work at their own pace, enjoying the experience of creating something wonderful in wool.
Some basic felting experience is an advantage though not essential.
Enrol now to secure your place. A cancellation policy applies.
