Make a wet felted vessel with artist Maggie Allmark
2nd October 2021 –
In this day long workshop you will design and make a simple 3D vessel or bird pod using a resist technique and wool fibres. Wet felting is a process using wool, hot water, soap and repeated agitation to cause the fibres to hook together or weave together into a piece of fabric and you will learn methods of doing this. Forming this fabric into a vessel can be very creative as felt is a very sculptural and responsive material. If you have particular ideas for design, colour or shape please let us know well before the workshop so that we can discuss. Suitable for complete beginners.
*Further workshops will introduce more advanced skills in using the book resist technique, and different ways of creating texture and form in your work.
