Textural Wet Felting Workshop

  • Art and Soul Retreat at Sheraton Airport Hotel

We’ll spend the day exploring the textural possibilities of wet-felted wool. Using only sheep’s wool and hot soapy water, you’ll learn to sculpt spikes, fins and craters using wet felting techniques and plastic resists. After lunch we’ll explore Nuno Felting – the art of combining wool fiber and fine fabric into a fabulously textured textile. You’ll come away from the class with a collection of samplers that could be small wall hangings or incorporated into your other mixed media works. This class is open to beginners, but would also work for intermediate wet felters wanting to expand their vocabulary in this material.
