textured felt techniques

September 20-21-22, 2019 by Kristy Kun

textured techniques with needled wool

In this workshop rich textures in wool felt are achieved by constructing layouts of thick of needled wool and wet felting them into a densely felted textile. Students will create sample-sized works, learning techniques for ribs, vertical joints and petals. Each student's unique design will emerge from the way materials are shaped, cut and formed.


Open to all skill levels

about Kristy Kun

"I'm deeply moved by the transformative qualities of wool and plant fibers, which, when plied correctly, parallel environmental transformations; birth, fruition, decay. Formations of water, earth and sky, emerge as if breathing and alive. My hands translate this energy and these textures from nature onto new form using altered methods of a timeless craft, felt"
