New Felting Workshops – Whitsundays Creative Arts Festival 2017

I am very pleased to announce that I am teaching 3 felting workshops at the Whitsundays Creative Arts Festival to be held 29th June to the 7th July 2017.    Rather than week long workshops this festival offers 2 day workshops meaning you can participate in 3 throughout the week, and making it a great way to teach felting.  Felting is very much a building up of techniques after learning to make quality felt.  There are so many directions you can go; fashion, wearable art, vessels, and my fave sculpting, let alone the number of techniques and styles.  I think this is going to be a great opportunity to teach several techniques using some of my favourite obsessions, and set in the beautiful Whitsundays, Queensland.  I can’t wait!  So what am I teaching?

  1.  Reef Dwellers.  Saturday 1 July & Sunday 2 July
    We are going to make gorgeous tropical fish using resists and templates, encompassed layers and differential shrinkage techniques, then we will stitch and bead them.  Full details and to book click here.
  2. The Felted Cactus Garden  Monday 3 July – Tuesday 4 July
    Create your own Cactus whilst learning multi-ribbed resist technique. This method of making resists will change the way you think about 3D felt making, and we’ll learn interesting things about Cacti along the way!  Full details and to book click here.
  3. Trio of Pots Thursday 6th & Friday 7th July
    Working your way through the Trio of Pots you will learn how to manipulate and shape felt into structurally sound and beautiful objects using differential shrinkage rates.  Full details and to book click here.
