Fissures I – Vessels & Cushions
February 15 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm£70
Influenced by the colours and landscape of Iceland during a recent trip, I have been experimenting with the cracked mud and craters resist techniques to make felts with fissures in their surfaces.
This workshop day will be explore combining the Icelandic geological inspiration with a how to use the ‘cracked mud’ technique in flat and 3d surfaces. You can choose between making a 3d vessel or a cushion panel incorporating your ‘cracked mud’ fissure design. Feltmakers with more advanced felting skills may like to try a seamless resist cushion.
A variety of images from Iceland will be available during the day for your colour platte and design inspiration. You are also encouraged to research geological fissures and bring along your own images from the land of ‘Fire & Ice’ or elsewhere on this planet or other, to work with too.
During the workshop you will;
– Be working with Corriedale batts
– Learn how to create a template for your own cracked mud design
– Understand how to layout wool batts
– Learn how to make a resist pattern for a bowl or cushion
This is a great opportunity to learn several new techniques during a one day workshop and apply them to creating a finished object.
