Fun Bags with Raewyn Penrose
16 Apr 2016 - 17 Apr 2016
During this 2 day workshop participants will have an opportunity to make either a Felted Mosaic Bag or a larger Textured Felt Bag.
FELTED MOSAIC BAG
Participants will create an individual styled bag using several felting techniques which include textured prefelt work and moulding.
Day 1: design and create textured and plain prefelts. Participants will then design their bag shape and start laying out the first stages of the moulded bag.
Day 2: continue to lay out their bag and then decorate the wool with the prefelts in their own design creating a mosaic effect with the base wool as the grouting. Handles and closures will complete the workshop.
At the conclusion of the workshop participants will have a good knowledge of both straight and moulding felt techniques plus go away with something they will be very proud to use.
TEXTURED FELT BAG
Participants will create a larger sized moulded bag which will be decorated with 3D and heavy silk embellishments.
At the conclusion of the workshop participants will have a good knowledge of moulding and also have many ideas to achieve 3D and heavy texture.
