from photo to felt

June 18-19, 2016 by Sandra Struck-Germann

POP-ART

Sandra’s reminiscent of pop art technology makes it easy to transmit Pop Art-like photos on felt. We are walking in the footsteps of Andy Warhol - a photo of a city view, landscape, flower, plant, an everyday object or a portrait is processed on the computer and serves as a template for the felted picture.

The course is designed for beginners and advanced users alike.

painting with wool

We will create a small series of 2-4 images with different background color. There are about 1-4 DIN A3 sized areas felted and Sandra will show you her method how an image can be used as a base for working with wool. Sandra has developped her own technique. The photo is previously edited on the computer by Sandra and she will show this method in the course.
