Felting Workshop with Natalia Sauvignon

Felting Workshop with Natalia Sauvignon


Felt is a non woven textile that is made by compressing and matting natural fibres together until they connect to form a sturdy fabric. Felt is the oldest form of cloth known and has been used by many cultures to make clothes, footwear, rugs and even shelters such as the Yurt. Today, felting is a popular craft that is highly versatile, and once mastered, one can create an array of wonderful flat cloths or 3D sculptures. In our one day workshop at Inkwell you will learn the two most popular felting techniques: wet felting and needle felting. The class will teach you how to create sculptures and beautiful flat textiles from wool with experienced wool artist Natalia Sauvignon. _All abilities are welcome_ _Suitable for children aged 14+ _ ABOUT NATALIA Natalia is an experienced and self trained wool artist who has exhibited widely in West Yorkshire. Her magnificent felted jewellery and sculptures play with enlarged, tactile compositions and lively colours. Natalia’s work blurs the lines between fine arts and craftwork. In this workshop she will share with you her hints and tips to help you create beautiful woolen pieces yourself. The workshop will give you the opportunity to make unique handfelted decorations, vessles, sculptures and creatures. INKWELL CAFE Our cafe and main gallery space is family friendly and offers a full vegetarian breakfast and lunch menu. With delicious homemade cakes and espresso bar open until 4pm.
