Interdisciplinary. Community. Advocacy. Humor.
This short workshop will introduce students to the processes of wool dying and dry and wet felting. Students will learn how to combine the two approaches in order to go beyond the flat format and expand into the three-dimensional hollow and solid forms. Using damaged 100% wool sweaters in combination with virgin wool will be demonstrated. So, if moths feasted on your favorite wool sweater to the point of irreparable damage, do not despair! Skills learned in this workshop may be applied to future creative projects that are tiny or sculptural in scale. This workshop focuses on learning the foundation of felting and getting a solid grasp on how to construct three-dimensional forms with the material. All participants will be able to try their hand at both techniques during the workshop, solidifying the covered material through hands on experience.
