Martien van Zuilen - Felt Adorned: Sculpture and Jewellery on a Precious Scale

This workshop is all about making felt on a precious scale! You will learn innovative felting techniques and create uniquely versatile and small sculptural works to adorn.

Learn to create ingenious beads (aptly named Scrunch, Spike, Dotty, Fangs, ColourCuts, and Twirls), cords and chains, sculpted closures and more. We will use fine merino wool and incorporate a range of novelty fibres, sumptuous silks and fabrics, wire and tubing, foam, recycled materials, metals, and the use multiple resists to create one-of-a-kind Pendants, Brooches, Necklaces, Earrings, Bangles, 3D Sculptural Forms and more, more, more…

The motto of the workshop is: ‘anything is possible’; the focus is on ‘quality in creativity’. This is a hands-on workshop with in-depth demonstrations, attention to detail and lots of 'play time'. Whether you are interested in jewellery, sculpture, embellishments or mixed media, this workshop will provide much inspiration and technical ‘know-how’, resulting in inspired creations finished to a high standard.

All levels of experience welcome; those with felting experience are set to expand their skills and ‘felt vocabulary’!
