Catherine O’Leary - Berry Quilting Retreat 26 & 27 August 2017
Catherine O’Leary - Painting with Fibre and Fabric Workshop
This is a feltmaking workshop which focuses on all the possibilities of surface design. We will explore the manipulation of texture, colour and composition using the techniques of felting through woven fabrics. This is a nuno feltmaking workshop with a difference as we will be working with nuno prefelts to achieve an intricate, detailed design which is a unique expression of each artist. The outcome of the workshop will be either a felt piece you can wear or a 2 dimensional design. Any level of experience is welcome.
