Beyond Felting: Silk, Wool & Paper
Eva Camacho-Sánchez, Instructor
Dates: Friday, September 16th – Sunday, September 18th, 2022 (9am-4pm)
During this three-day workshop, students will learn how to create a textured and unique surface by felting merino wool onto mulberry paper, and vice-versa. Paper is a material that provides certain tactile qualities, while adding more structure to the felt. Students will learn how to combine these two materials, how to trap the mulberry paper into the surface with wool, and how to felt both of them together. Students will use this technique to create several 12”x12” pieces, which can later be applied to garments, accessories and other felted work.
This workshop is for intermediate level felters – though beginners are welcome!
