Surface Design in Felt with Leeann Kroetsch

  • 23 Jun 2024
  • 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
  • Leeann's Home

Registration

  • Date: Sunday, June 23
    Time: 9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
    Location: Leeann's home (Address will be provided to participants)

    Class size: Register early as the class size is limited to six (a second class will be added if the first one fills)

    Tuition: $120 includes felting supplies plus all felt-making materials
    Depending upon your piece, I may be able to offer limited silk fabric for surface design

    The workshop for June will embody surface design. Please join my class to create a piece of wall art.

    Felt-making is a magical technique. It is both the action and the outcome. It is a hands-on process that is tactical and requires you to 'feel' the wool as you manipulate it. As the wool fibers become fabric, the consistency and colours blend. The medium allows for dimension and surface design. There is opportunity to incorporate different types of medium as you would with mixed media or collage.

    While creating felt, colour may be used in a painterly fashion. The interplay with wool and fabric promote sculptural interpretation.

    Is it an art or a craft?

    We will start with a clean slate of wool as a backdrop. You will learn how to wet felt wool fiber to create a 'picture' whether realistic, abstract, whimsical, geometric or otherwise. Afterward, you can embellish with yarn, fabric, embroidery, found objects, polymer clay pieces, quilted pieces. Only your imagination will limit you.

    Size will be limited to what can be reasonably completed within the class time.

    For those who have taken a wall piece class in the past, I will help you learn how to use resists to create 3D expressions.

    What do you need to bring: lunch and refreshments, apron, paper and pen for note taking and your enthusiasm to learn
