This is a class of exploration looking at wool and felt from the point of view of being a substance as opposed to a textile. Learn the skill of skinfelting to make hollow sculptural felt forms directly by the hand without the use of a resist. This method allows for complex shapes to be modelled. This class will also explore the ways that numerous substances interact with felted forms. Learn how to apply gold leaf, plaster, wax, putty, tar, and many other substances to felt forms that can transform the felted shape into an object of structural strength, intrigue and beauty. This workshop will leave the felt artist with many new ideas for future felt projects.
