Extension Skills Program – Pockets and multiple resists.
03/11/2020 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Use of multiple resists can create exciting and multidimensional shapes in your felt. This session will show how to use multiple resists to make complex forms, and will teach how to get a firm shape to the work, as well as how to incorporate silk fabric to add extra nuno texture. Samples will be provided to demonstrate how these techniques can be applied to create a broad range of effects. We will make a sample pocket that can be turned into a rose. This session will give you the skills needed to create multidimensional felt shapes and to undertake more complex projects.
All the felting equipment is supplied, and materials will be available for sale on the day (cost up to $5), so you just need to bring along your enthusiasm.
These classes are designed for inexperienced felters, or anyone wanting to refresh their skills or learn a new felting technique. They are ideal for people who have completed the Feltwest beginners workshop and are keen to learn more, or gain the skills and confidence required to undertake a more advanced felting workshop.
Extension classes are kept small to provide a lot of 1:1 support to participants in a relaxed and helpful environment. The sessions will focus on creating one or more samples on a specific technique.
