Felting Workshop with Barbara Attwell
Presented by the Contemporary Handweavers of Houston
May 6 – 7, 2017
9am – 4pm, with a lunch break
Professional artist Barbara Attwell will lead a wet felting workshop that both introduces and reviews the basics of the process, along with advanced techniques such as complex resists for 3D felting, creating textures, making and attaching shapes, using prefelts, and making cording and balls. A comfort level with fiber or felting is encouraged.
Workshop includes a Wall Hanging and a 3D Vessel. We will learn layout, various rolling techniques, the use of silk, bamboo, and stash to add texture, and resists to create pockets, the use of prefelts and Shiboril, seamless felting, simple and multiple resists to create cavities, complex resists to add more shapes, and to make and attach ropes, stems, and balls.
- Cost for the workshop is $225, plus $30 Supply fee if needed.
