CREATING A FELT PICTURE: WET FELTING AND NEEDLE FELTING WORKSHOP
with Jay Kendall of Knitwit Originals
7.00-9.15pm (2 ¼ hrs) at Brighton Road Baptist Church, Horsham
This is Jay Kendall of Knitwit Originals third workshop for us and she is back with us by popular demand. This time she is going to show us how to create a Picture (approx A4 in size) using techniques of Wet felting and Needle Felting.
Come and paint with wool fibres, blending colours and textures to create a unique and beautiful piece of art work that you could maybe use as a wall hanging. You will use a selection of natural and dyed wools from a range of colours.
This workshop will show you the basics of wet felt making and you will learn the amazing process of turning wool fibres into hand made felt. Wet felting is a wonderfully tactile art which allows you to build shapes.
Jay will then demonstrate how to needle felt small details onto the picture which you will have to complete at home once the wet felt has dried (you will be provided with a needle so that you can). For more details on what needle felting is please see our previous post here. Jay will also be bringing a selection of fleece for people to complete their picture as well as extra packs to purchase.
