Felting Workshop with Natalia Sauvignon
10th December 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm£25
Felt is the oldest form of cloth known and has been used by many cultures to make clothes, footwear, rugs and even shelters such as the Yurt. Today, felting is a popular and skilled craft that is highly versatile, and once mastered, one can create an array of wonderful flat cloths or 3D sculptures.
In our one day workshop you will learn the two most popular felting techniques: wet felting and needle felting. The class will teach you how to create sculptures and beautiful flat textiles from wool with talented artist Natalia Sauvignon.
Natalia is an experienced and self trained wool artist who has exhibited widely in West Yorkshire. Her magnificent felted jewelry and sculptures play with enlarged, tactile compositions and lively colours. Natalia’s work blurs the lines between fine arts and craftwork. In this workshop she will share with you her hints and tips to help you create beautiful woolen pieces yourself. The workshop will give you the opportunity to make unique hand felted decorations, vessles, sculptures and creatures.
