Pleated Felt Scarves

YouTube video recording of demonstration 

Cost: £45

Based on Canadian smocking, these techniques do not lend themselves to a real time workshop. Therefore, I chose to offer a demonstration where I explained three different pleating techniques and how to apply them to make scarves. If you missed the ‘live’ demonstration, you can still purchase the recording, which explains how to prepare felt for the pleating, how to create the pleats and finish with various dyeing methods.

Design for Makers

Online via Zoom

Cost: £75

I have just finished running ‘An Introduction to Design’ online course and have been delighted by the students response – it has been a truly inspiring experience.  I had been mulling over running such a course for several years and Zoom appears to be the perfect platform for delivering it. There is time to think and consider between sessions and no need to travel either. The course is spread over four weeks with two, approximately two hour sessions a week, one session a presentation with set tasks to work on in your own time and the second, a feedback and discussion session. The sessions are arranged at mutually convenient times. The aim of the course is to help students, especially those self taught,  develop a more considered and professional approach to their making process. I limit the number of students to 8 in order to create a small group to work together as a team. I have a few students interested in my next session which I will run when I get a full complement of 8. If you are interested, do get in touch.

slash feltSlash/Reveal

YouTube video recording of workshop

Cost: £45

During this workshop, participants experiment with Bergschaf wool batts to create a colourful flat sample using the ‘Slash /Reveal’ technique.
Suitable for those with some felting experience, I demonstrate the technique so participants can make along with me, experimenting with Bergschaf wool batts to create a colourful slashed piece.  This wool felts easily but is much stronger than merino wool so is ideal for slashing and creating sculptural work. The technique can be adapted to add to hats, vessels etc….
The four hour workshop is a recording of a ‘live’ Zoom workshop with a 30 minute introductory recording.
Both the workshop and introductory sessions are non time limited on YouTube so can watch them again, take notes, pause and make at your own pace.
An equipment and materials list is also supplied.
