Learn to create your own felted framed masterpiece during a day workshop. Using Merino wool plus a whole bunch of extras: silk threads, silk hankies, wool nepps, etc, you will learn how to wet felt a background for your picture. Then learn how to needle felt onto it to create the foreground. A 12 x 12 box frame is included in the materials price so that you can frame the piece.
Classes with Eve Marshall are limited to just 5 students so that you receive more attention and are able to learn more about felting and techniques in a small group setting. Light refreshments are included but lunch is not provided. There is an hour break for lunch.
All materials will be supplied and can be bought at the end of the class if you want to continue at home.
Eve Marshall (BA Fine Art) is an experienced and popular textile artist as well as workshop provider in schools and with adults. She creates a variety of small bespoke items such as animals, birds, flowers which can be used as brooches or pure decoration around the home as well as art led 2D wall pieces and more complex adornments such as art led bags, scarves and slippers. She exhibits and sells at prestigious country shows, has appeared in national magazines and has also sells her pieces in Greenwich. She is a founding member and curator of ESC, an artist and maker co-operative.
Art in the Heart has become one of her favourite places to exhibit. Our customers love her work and we ask her to make many special commissions for customers who want pieces for special gifts and occasions.
So we are delighted that Eve is now offering a full and varied programme of felting workshops for all abilities and interests. She delivers full day, half day workshops where you can create more labour intensive, complex pieces through to our 'Felting Friday' taster sessions, where you can learn the very basics in an hour and make a little something which you can take away all for £10.00. A lovely Friday treat or a little outing with friends after lunch. You can book these to make sure you get a space but if all else fails you can simply 'drop in'.
