Workshop Information Place: Shatford Centre, 760 Main Street, Penticton, BC Time: 9 am to 5 pm Dates: Wednesday through Friday, September 13, 14 & 15, 2017 Instructor: Pam de Groot
In this 3 day workshop you will explore the relationship of wool dimension and space to create undulating forms. Drawing on your own skill in the sculptural aspects of wool, investigate the power of shape connections. You will discover how to vastly alter the surface of felt, through adding components or foreign objects. By the end of the workshop you’ll create your own piece. Experience in felt making is essential.
