Felted Scene Inspired by Nature - retreat
Spend a day working with fibre and creativity. Enjoy a workshop, learn new fibre art techniques, visit other fibre artists and enjoy the many sites and sounds that Salt Spring Island has to offer.
Felted Scene Inspired by Nature Gain an understanding on of the techniques used for making felt while creating a beautiful art wall hanging. Rachel Hughes will cover the basics of making a “wet felted” background, then add surface depth with a variety of felting techniques. This workshop will touch on felted cords and balls, needle felting and creating texture in the felting process. Open to felter’s of any level, just bring along a willingness to be creative and have fun.
Felting with wool fibres is a satisfying and creative process. In the felted landscape course, Rachel covers the basics of making a wet felted background and then embellishing onto it to create a scene inspired by nature.
Wool roving, mohair locks, silk hankies, silk rods and cocoons can all be used to create dimension in a landscape piece.
The addition of cords, texture, beads and thread work help to make these pieces a beautiful piece of art.
