Felting on Found Objects (MMED w166-6)

Found felting is a process of felting around found objects to create sculptural forms. This one-day workshop focuses on found felting as a process to develop creative and technical skills around armature building and working with shape, form, texture & colour. Needle felting techniques such as shaping, layering, indentation, elaboration, and extension will also be covered. Contemporary sculptors working with felt and found objects will be introduced and referenced while students engage in both collaborative and individual processes that expand traditional approaches to felt.

Abstract Painting: Mapping the Landscape (PNTG w211)

This workshop will focus on learning to see the landscape as made up of a series of abstracted shapes and forms that one can move through. Both rural and urban landscape forms will be explored and maps will be used as a basis for abstract image making. Maps will be considered as a way to understand how we move through space. The day will consist of two projects layering ideas of map and form. Images of other artists' work will fuel your idea development and understanding of aspects of painting such as perspective, colour, composition, contrast and scale. Feel free to bring ideas and/or images of landscapes or maps that intrigue you. You could choose to focus on a landscape that has special meaning to you and think about ideas of mapping such as literal maps, remembered or historical routes or future imagined routes. Landscape images and maps will also be available for your use. Some painting experience recommended.
