LISA KLAKULAK Solid Form Felting Techniques + Claps and Closures
17 May - 19 May
Explore systematic construction techniques for solid felt forms: spheres, discs, barrels, hoops and cords allowing for controlled repetition or deviation of form.
Learn graceful connection techniques for wet-felting these basic forms together seamlessly into unique clasps and closures and as well as their attachment to surfaces and edges.
These techniques provide ample air space for shrinkage resulting in well-integrated surfaces that won’t pill. Students will also incorporate shapes cut from thick hand made partial felt to create more complexity of form, more angular and defined edges and means for production.
Our skill set can also be used to build complex compositions for adornment, hanging devices,
surface protuberances or purely sculptural form.
