Lisa Klakulak’s workshop, Felt: Depth of Surface/Depth of Field

31 July - 4 August


5-day in person workshop at a destination craft school on a working farm. Explore thickness of layout and densities of partially felted sheets of wool for patterning effects, texture resists and edging techniques when fusing wool through fabrics. Incorporate surprising substrates and a variety to be used to trap found objects under and in fabric pockets to add strategic weight, defined shape, dimension and color. Free-motion embroidery will be applied to offer finer detailing and to compress remaining airspace in the felt creating an embossed effect. These studies/samples of intensive techniques are suggested as a focal point in a larger field of felt, for example: a jacket cuff, a shirt collar, a bag flap, an aspect of a wall hanging and/or a jewelry component.

Not for novice felters. Intermediate & Advance participants having experience with laying out thin and evenly and looking to develop new aesthetics through structural play of felt, fabric and stitch.
**Wet felting is a physically demanding process. Participants should be comfortable standing; have shoulder, arm and hand strength/mobility; be comfortable with having their hands in wet/soapy conditions for hours and exposed to hot and cold water. **
