Students will start to lay out a felt piece on the first day, to get used to the method and materials (fibres) used. I will share with students some tips on how to be resourceful and how to start thinking as a felter; e.g. how to make a hat mould from old bowls, or a bag mould from plastic placemats or ice-cream container lids; how to rebirth old woollen jumpers into felt works and why old lace doilies are awesome! From here, I will discuss individually with students what sort of felt work they would like to complete during the week; whether they simply want to experiment and play with materials and techniques to produce a one-of-a-kind Artist’s Book, and/or complete something wearable, or a wall-hanging. The students’ imagination is their only limitation, and I will do my best to gently push them outside their creative comfort zone; to think outside the box.
There will be a cost of materials for the course, which will cover all the fibres to be used during the course. This cost will be $135 and includes a bamboo blind which is essential. I will have fibre packs and other fabrics such as silk available for purchase but that is optional.
