Felt Making Workshop

Saturday 27th-Sunday 28th August 2022

Join Colleen Plank in her earth brick studio where you will hand form your own striking artwork from natural materials using the wet felt-making technique.

This two-day workshop is an opportunity to extend your individual creativity by learning how to apply design principles to felt work, making your designs cohesive and interesting.
Colleen will guide you on how to enhance your ideas by choosing colours that work well together, incorporating the techniques of resists, inlays, or embellishments to create textures into the structure of the felt. There will be a generous selection of hand-dyed NZ merino wool, and luxury silk fabrics and fibres awaiting you.

The focus will be to create your own unique artwork for the wall, by developing your ideas about composition and making a piece that is meaningful to you. There may also be an opportunity to try other 3D felting techniques

At the end of this small group workshop, you will have a finished piece for your interior along with many ideas for future projects.

Tutor: Colleen Plank is experienced in tutoring a vast range of art textile techniques and enjoys teaching beginners as well as inspiring anyone with existing skills
