*** Die für den Mai geplanten Kurse in Hohebuch haben wir auf die Sommerferien verlegt und hoffen, daß wir Euch dann endlich wieder im wahren Leben zum Filzen begrüßen können! Für alle, die nicht reisen können oder wollen, gibt es auch weiterhin Online Filzkurse

*** The May workshops planned at Hohebuch will be postponed and take place in August 2021, hopefully the perfect time of the year to welcome you again for some „real life felting“! For those who can’t or don’t want to travel far, I will continue with online workshops

*** 3D FILZ IN MINIATUR – BLÜTENARMBÄNDER

In diesem Tageskurs versuchen wir uns an einer zierlichen Variante der 3d Technik und filzen Armbänder, Broschen oder Haarspangen aus feiner Merinowolle und Seide. Im kleinen Format üben wir besonders das feine und präzise Auslegen der Fasern und den geschickten Einsatz von Farbtönen, um Licht- und Schatteneffekte zu erzielen.

3D FELT EN MINIATURE – FLORAL WRISTLET OR BROOCH

In this one day class you can learn about 3d felting in a small scale version, making lovely floral wristlets, brooches or hair pins. Working in small dimensions, we will focus on fine and precise layout of fibres and practise blending of colors to achieve light-and-shadow effects.

*** SEIDENTOPS IN BLASENOPTIK – Passend für die warme Jahreszeit filzen wir luftige, sommerliche Oberteile. Auf leichte Pongéseide tragen wir eine hauchfeine Wollstruktur auf, die den Stoff später effektvoll raffen und kräuseln wird. Mit Hilfe einer Schablone können die Tops nahtlos gearbeitet und sogar beidseitig getragen werden. Die Größe sollte eher großzügig berechnet werden, so daß das Oberteil locker fällt, offen oder mit Gürtel getragen.
Als etwas einfachere Variante könnt Ihr auch eine Stola in gleicher Technik wählen.

SILKTOPS WITH BUBBLE SURFACE

Perfect for the warm season we will create light, summerly silk tops. On a base of thin silk pongé fabric we will lay out a delicate structure of fine wool which will catch and ruffle the fabric in a beautiful way. Using a resist we can make a seamless, even reversible blouse. The size should be calculated rather generous for a loose, comfortable fit, f.ex. wearable with a belt.
For an easier version you may also choose making a scarf or wrap in the same technique.

upcoming workshops

July 17 – 19, 2021   at La Couech, Montbrun-Bocage/FR, http://feutreformationfrance.com

DIVERSITY – DISCOVERING NEW SPECIES IN FELT

An exiting expedition into the rich potential of creative feltmaking. Using the same set of resists again and again, but changing their positions or further treatment in the felting process, you’ll discover a variety of ways to go from the same starting point and find surprising transformations and new felt species.

 

 

 

July 21 – 23, 2021   at La Couech, Montbrun-Bocage/FR, http://feutreformationfrance.com

WALLHANGINGS OR FELT OBJECTS
INSPIRED BY BOTANICAL STRUCTURES

In this class we will explore various possibilities of translating a natural object or structure into a piece of felted art.
Students should please bring natural objects (or photos of them) as an inspiration and we will discuss suitable techniques, material combinations and important details of your layout, shape and position of necessary resists.
After a few sample pieces you will realise your own individual project, while from time to time we’ll have a look at all works in the group, talk about technical details, options or difficulties and find solutions for tricky situations. This way, all participants can learn from each other, understand parallels and differences of several ways of working and find more confidence in the permanent dialogue between the felt and its maker.

 



*** Unfortunately, all workshops below had to be cancelled:           *** Alle untenstehenden Kurse mußten leider abgesagt werden:

3D WEARABLES

In this workshop we will deal with 3d structures in feltmaking and explore how composition and direction of fibres influence the final consitency, shape and flexibility of a piece of felt.
You will learn how to develop a pattern for your individual size waistcoat and then create a fashionable, unique garment with multiple collars or 3d surface elements.

April 13 – 15, 2020   Blenheim/NZ

INSPIRATIONS FROM NATURE – COMPLEX 3D OBJECTS

With natural objects as a starting point we will explore a variety of ways and perspectives for felted creations. We’ll develop suitable resists and construction methods, discuss technical details and the diversity of possible individual approaches, shapes and characteristic features.


April 17 – 19, 2020   Ashburton/NZ  http://feltandfibre.co.nz

FLAT FELT AND FORM

In this workshop we want to explore various possibilities of how to build up reliefs or 3-dimensional felted objects. Playing with a number of basic form elements, that can be combined, aligned or interlaced with each other in different ways, we can create beautiful pieces of jewelry or sculptural felt art.


April 25 – 27, 2020   Melbourne/Australia  http://feltwearable.com

WEARABLE MOSAICS

Creating mosaics offers a great chance to make use of a precious collection of leftover silk fabrics. Fine lines of wool will be used as frames to assemble the fabrics into colourful ornaments, scarves, wraps, blouses or decorative collages.

In order to avoid holes and receive a delicate but stabil result, the layout and first prefelting require patience and precision. But once all components are well connnected, the last stage of felting will be done easily.


April 30 – May 03, 2020   Adelaide/Australia   http://evocativearts.com.au

3D STRUCTURES FOR WEARABLES OR WALLHANGINGS

In this class we will deal with multi-layer surfaces in feltmaking which can be applied to wearables as well as art objects. We’ll experiment with different ways of wool layering, direction of fibers and placement of resists and see how the initial layout influences the final shape of your felt. The result can be a 3d waistcoat or sculptural wallhanging.
