12. Abstract Painting using pre-felt inspired by the masters - Braque, Matisse, Bauhaus weavers ...
You'll use scissors to cut/place different colours of pre felt atop a maximum A3 size pre-felt background. Then you'll use wet felting techniques to bring everything together to form your final pieces of work. Depending on the complexity of what you make you may have time to make more than one piece. You can use abstract Bauhaus imagery as inspiration or bring your own. A relaxed workshop taking place at Heather's home studio in Camberwell fuelled by plenty of home made cake and teas. A maximum of four participants, means these workshops provide everybody with plenty of time for one on one attention. Heather always aims for sessions to be flexible to individual participants needs. This workshop uses wet felt making techniques to bring your cut pre-felt together into the finished piece. It's a simple process (once you know how) made up of a series of repetitive actions. Many people find it relaxing and some a stress buster. But, the final stages of of felt making are quite vigorous and very hands on. If you have arthritis in your hands you may find parts of the process challenging. That being said it’s not stopped anybody before and Heather is very happy to help you with vigorous parts of the process. Allergies to cats or indeed wool? Please note Heather has three cats (they’ll be elsewhere in the house during the workshops). Antihistamines are available but her workshops may not be for you.

14. Make a woolly planter and learn the basics of 3D Wet Felting
This private Live online version of my 3D wet felting workshop needs a minimum of three people to run and for me to post you kits; please bear this in mind when booking. It takes a bit longer than the in person workshop; about 3 and a half hours. But I also recommend allowing for a 15 minute break half way through. It could be run over a couple of afternoons or evenings. Please message me if you're looking to join a group. On this workshop you’ll use a variation of 2D wet felting to create a small vessel/planter. Heather will post you a kit with the materials and some of the equipment you need. Any other equipment you will be able to find around your home. The pre-class notes explains all. On the workshop you’ll be guided through how to use the resist, the layering and felting techniques to make and shape your work. Once you've mastered this you can make slippers, bags, cat caves, hats, hot water bottle covers, lamp shades, purses, phone covers, and the list goes on ... I usually run this workshop with a 15 minute break roughly half way through. There are a maximum of six participants to enable me to see what you're all doing. Keeping it small means I have plenty of time for one on one attention. Processing the fibres is made up of a series of repetitive actions. Many people find this relaxing and some a stress buster. But, the final stages of wet felt making can be quite vigorous and very hands on. If you have arthritis or a similar condition in your hands you may find parts of the process more challenging. This does not mean you will not be able to undertake this workshop, just that it may take you a little longer to felt your work. But if you're feeling at all unsure please message me.
