6-week online course to make a large, contemplative sculpture. It is a very energetic wet felted process that is similar to clay sculpting and can be easily adapted to make any shape or form. The course is suitable for all felt makers – some experience is useful.
Classes are small and there are a few places left!
I have always worked the figures with natural, undyed fibres, however I have developed a way to make a colourful, textured figure…..At the end of the course I have included a new lesson to show you how you can add colourful fibres and fabrics into the surface of the figure
You will learn how to make a large contemplative sculpture using a wet felt method of sculpting.
The sculptures are inspired by the work of modern sculptors, such as Barbara Hepworth and Sir Henry Moore and others. You will have the opportunity to explore the work of these sculptors and, through a series of drawing exercises, create your own shapes.
The finished figure will measure about 12″/30cm – 18″/45cm in height, dependent on the shape and position. I will encourage you to create your own style and pose – you may wish to work on a more upright figure or one that is suspended rather than sitting.
