Petals, Tendrils, and Vines

Home workshop with online video support and chatroom class discussions.

This is an advanced workshop for refining delicate sculptural formations. Three lessons will present new techniques for manipulating wool into complex forms.

PREREQUISITE: Texture Techniques with Needled Wool. Please do not register for this home workshop without the prerequisite course. You will not be enrolled if the first course has not been taken in the studio or as a home workshop... Believe me, it is to ensure your own success.

For each lesson, students are supplied with all of the required materials, tutorials, and online video demonstrations to successfully learn the new techniques. Each student's unique design will emerge from the way materials are shaped, cut, and formed.

Advanced techniques include:
• In-depth video instruction of forming and sculptiing.
• New methods of dry assemble that allow small batch production.
• Cord style tendrils that are expandable to many lengths, with inclusions.
• Working with sizing to create gravity defying assemblies.

• Introduction to COMPLEX MATERIALS with wool clad in silk fibers supplied in kit.

Kits include printed tutorials and materials for each lession. Students will need to supply a foam pad for needle felting, needle felting tool, scissors, and water, soap and towels for the wet felting portion of the lessons.

THIS IS AN ON-DEMAND COURSE

Upon registration, a kit will be mailed within three days. Upon delivery of the kit, an email invitation to join the online classroom will be sent. Once you log into the classroom, the fun will begin! Students have a place to post questions and results of the lessons for instructor feedback. The platform is easy to use and communication can be tailored to each students needs.
