• *Wait List Only* Felt Foldings with Andrea Noeske-Porada from Germany

    Saturday, 15th July 2017 at 9:30am - 4:30pm, Sunday, 16th July 2017 at 9:30am - 4:30pm
    Location: Hartwell Church of Christ, Hartwell

    In this workshop students will create and felt 3-dimensional intricate constructions and foldings. Andrea will guide the students through the whole process beginning with reading a folding pattern, folding a paper model, and transferring it into felt.  Besides this Andrea will show students how to build up sharp, clear edges and points.  This universal technique can be used for a number of other applications.

    Experience with felting is required.  The ability to have fun with contructive projects is helpful.  Mathematical understanding is not necessary.

    Andrea's creative interest is primarily in abstract, reduced and form based spatial art.  In her current artistic work, the construction take first place, though the changeability and liveliness of the finished object are also important.  Andrea loves to explore felt's potential for spatial creation. 

    A materials fee may be payable to the tutor direct, but it will not be more than $25, we will provide more details nearer the time.

    This is a member only workshop.  If it is full a waiting list will be created.  E-mail the contact below if this is the case.

  • ***NOW FULL***Pine Needle Scarf with Leiko Uchiyama (Ireland/Japan)

    Saturday, 23rd September 2017 at 9am - 4pm, Sunday, 24th September 2017 at 9am - 4pm
    Location: Hartwell Church of Christ Hall, 246 Highfield Rd.( crn. Milverton st) Hartwell 3124

    We are going to learn the pine needles technique which is a very fine lacy felt and incorporate that into a scarf.  We will combine the technique with delicate  fine regular feltmaking.  

    I was inspired by pine needles spread on snow in my home town of Sapporo, Japan.  It is a unique technique to give you a different point of view about feltmaking, it is also something that only your hands can do.

    Intermediate level of feltmaking required.
