Skills Extension – Cut Snakes
This is a fun, experimental workshop using lots of colour and a wide variety of techniques. Multi-layered solid cords will be made and wound and stitched into prefelts. After felting, you will cut into your work to expose layers of colour, raised surfaces and negative spaces.
Participants will make a sample piece of quality felt.
All the felting equipment is supplied. Participants can bring their own wool or purchase a sample pack on the day for a cost of $5, so you just need to bring along a towel and 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.
