Surface Form & Space
a workshop with Pam De Groot
This workshop will explore the relationship of wool dimension and space to create undulating forms. Drawing on your own skill in the sculptural aspects of wool, investigate the power of shape, connections. You will discover how to vastly alter the surface of felt, through adding components or foreign objects.
Some experience in felt making is preferred.
No materials fee payable to Tutor.
Estimated cost of materials on list: $100
After originally working as a studio potter, Pam has now worked in the field of Fibre and Textile art for almost 21 years, creating wearables, accessories and more recently sculpture. In this time she has explored new approaches to using felt, fibre, dyeing techniques and colour. She particularly pushes the boundaries of what is possible within felt making to reach new innovations in this ever growing field of textiles.
I hope to excite the viewer with the possibilities and mysteries of this craft.
