Felt, Fibre, Fabric & Stitch Workshop
Snainton Village Hall North Yorkshire
Spend the day in likeminded company experimenting with felt to create a Textile collection of samples to make into a folding style display to keep.
During the day you will make your own pieces of felt to create a collection of small samples
containing a selection of techniques on each piece . The samples will explore a wide variety of techniques incorporating textural surfaces using a selection of silks and fibres. We will also use stitch, fabrics, hand spun yarn and natural fibres to create interesting surfaces. Finally you will have a taster of effects that can be achieved with shibori felt Wrapping/stitching methods, to achieve interesting shapes and surfaces once dry and stitching is removed (not dyeing).
I will end the day showing you how you could display your samples, once dry, in a variety of ways, including combining them with found objects, wire and wood. If you manage to finish all your sampling and the felt is dry enough we can make a start on the assembly of your sample collection. I will provide a selection of found objects suitable to incorporate with your work. I will also have lots of samples that may spark ideas for incorporating your own found objects you may have at home.
This workshop is a relaxing day of mixed methods to produce a variety of small pieces that can be referred back to for reference when creating your own work in the future. It allows you to try small samples of a wide variety of methods all in one day. Come with an open mind and enjoy the process.
Having tried a sample of techniques you could then go on in the future to learn in more detail about your favourite results.
