Extra datums! Felt as Substance By Anita Larkin Johnson
12 September - 13 September£385
This workshop explores looking at wool fibres and felt from the point of view of being a substance for sculpture that can interact with other substances and build upon itself similar to clay. Learn the skill of skin-felting to make hollow sculptural felt forms directly by hand without the use of a plastic resist. This method allows for complex shapes to be modelled in 3 dimensions directly. This class will also explore the ways that numerous substances interact with the surface of finished felt vessels. Apply gold leaf, silicone, wax, burning, putty, tar, and other substances to felt forms that can transform that 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.
