Introduction to Feltmaking with Carmela Corvaia

In this felt-making workshop join artist Carmela Corvaia to learn various techniques for flat and 3-D felting. Participants will create a square ‘sampler’, layering coloured fleece and applying designs. You will explore the nature of fleece and the potential to create translucent and opaque felt. Participants will then move onto 3-D felting to make a selection of small objects, including coloured balls, a small container or small bag.

CLOTH AND MEMORY - SELF PORTRAIT IN FABRIC & STITCH WITH SARAH TOOHEY

Explore identity and culture using stitch, textiles techniques and preloved fabrics. This workshop is inspired by Candy Lee’s Taiwanese flora fabric and the connections and memories we associate with fabrics.

In this workshop we will ‘collage’ a self-portrait using pre-loved fabrics and a variety of textiles techniques including applique, reverse applique, machine stitching and hand stitch. This quick, sketching approach is suitable for all levels including beginners.

Please bring a few small pieces of fabric that remind you of a time, place or person to incorporate in your portrait.
