Build your own organic growth! Learn the technique of needlefelting with wool and a barbed needle. Create a three dimensional structure while exploring the unique qualities of this material. First week will cover basic technique. The second week will be about individual work and more advanced applications. There will be some homework in the week between classes.

Society for Contemporary Craft
Explore material and process in the creation of 3D constructions. During this workshop we will use commonplace materials with some age-old ingenious, handwork techniques such as knitting, weaving, felting, and crochet in the fabrication of surfaces and structures. Through class demonstrations and individual exercises, students will gain insight into the potentials of these low-tech and accessible methods and materials, as well as an understanding of some of the elements involved in creating three-dimensional works. Students will explore the innovative use of materials ranging from wire to wool from both manufactured and natural environments. Examples by other artists will be provided.
