CHRIS LINES in the south of France, felted collage design
27 May - 30 May
In this workshop we will cover the potential of multi-coloured pre-felts with the addition of dyed or printed fabrics and non-wool fibres (if desired) to build up a ‘collaged’ or layered design, which can also incorporate elements of stitch. We will cover techniques for making pre-felts and explore their potential, through cutting and layering of shapes to build up a design. We will make a series of sample pieces where we will consider aspects of colour theory, tonal contrast and composition. My aim is to show you how these techniques can enhance and extend your skills by helping you to feel more confident about using the basic elements of design, such as line, shape, colour, tone, texture and pattern. You will produce a set of sample pieces using your own design inspiration. This can be abstract or representational.
