JENNIFER FIELD: 
NEEDLE FELTED PORTRAITS

May 4 & 5, 2019 
9:30 am – 4:30 pm

$250 +materials

jennifer-fieldWe had such fun with Jennifer in her needle felted Woodland Animals workshop that she agreed to return to share her skills for creating needle felted portrait figures!

“The focus is on faces in this intermediate needle felting workshop. I will share my tricks and techniques for sculpting lifelike human faces with wool fleece. Bring your questions and frustrations and learn how to take your felted figures to another level! Learn about facial structure and proportions, how to blend wool to make accurate skin tones, how to create realistic features like lifelike expressive eyes, noses and mouths and how to make different hairstyles with wool. You can create a relief face, a bust or start with a WIP figure. I will discuss how to build an armature to turn your face into a full figure. We will start by creating a core skull shape out of un-dyed merino wool and then add thin layers of color.  

Prior felting, drawing or sculpture experience is very helpful. With a little guidance you will be amazed at the possibilities of wool.

Subjects could be yourself, your child/grandchild, favorite artist, historical or fantasy figure.” -Jennifer Field

NUNO BEAD MEDITATION
2 day workshop

JUNE 6 & 7, 2019    

9:00 am – 5:00 pm
$250 +materials

There is something especially wonderful about concentrating on one small intimate object at a time. Slowly recognizing the path you will take to release its beauty, to create something really unique. Each bead has this potential to be seduced out by the slow methodical meditation of creation. Hand stitching felted fabrics cultivates this creative spirit.NancyBallesteros.NecklaceMaking.CUSTOM.0564

NancyBallestero.NecklaceEarthy.sideimage.3461In this class you are encouraged to dig deep into your fabric stash to find exotic and unusual fabrics which will be nuno felted into a mosaic which forms the basis from which our beads will begin to Ballesteros.BeadMediationBeach.emerge. Design themes and elements will be discussed to help focus your design choices. Techniques will be developed to manipulate structural elements and spontaneous hand stitching and beading will be applied. The final stringing of each unique bead will be pondered. Cording is an essential element of good design. Several methods of cord making will be explored as well as a discussion of purchased materials. A heightened sensitivity to your materials will be nurtured. No previous felting experience is necessary. Basic hand stitching skills needed.

Nancy Ballesteros (Perth, Western Australia) –

Nancy Ballesteros has passionately worked with fabric all her life. She spent most of her childhood sewing and then was introduced to spinning, felting and dyeing during study breaks at university. These elements quickly took over as her life’s passion and she hatched a fibre business called Treetops Colour Harmonies in 1987. Since moving to Australia in 1990, Treetops continued to grow into a successful international web-based company offering felting supplies for discerning felt makers. She has taught felting for many years before taking a break to raise her two children and run Treetops. Nancy was instrumental in developing the technique of Silk ‘Paper’. She has written about felting in numerous publications and participated in many workshops and master classes. www.treetopscolours.com.au, www.facebook.com/treetopscolours

Have you ever wondered if the beauty in nature has any particular design method which it follows? Come and explore how the simple but powerful Fibonacci design principle can be applied to your nuno felting (no maths necessary!). His principal can be found everywhere in nature and is incredibly visually pleasing to the human brain. We will be using Fibonacci’s principle to create sophisticated rhythmical linear patterns (both structured and organic) while combining them with tasteful colour palettes. You could fill a library with all the endless possibilities!

Day17.stripe.WM.8663Using her 30+ years of creating colour, Nancy will present some of her practical ideas and exercises to help develop your own colour language. We will learn Nancy’s new technique of working with WET wool for making clear sharp lines and GREAT superfine nuno cloth. Specific fulling techniques will expand your felting skills. Our aim is to develop an extensive personal library of samples that will inspire your creative process for years to come.

Leiko Uchiyama

Leiko Uchiyama is a Japanese felt making artist living in Ireland. Her educational background in both Animal Science and Textile Design sparked in her a curiosity about wool and its properties. More than 20 years of her felting experience explores the possibilities of wool in the 21st century. She loves the beauty and the happiness which real hand crafts bring to our society. Technology has been developing so fast, we tend to forget how wonderfully skilled our hands are. Her work and classes remind you of the beauty and the joy which only our hands can bring in making.
Felted Jacket with Pine-Needles collar and sleeves
“Pine Needles is the lacy felt technique I invented many years ago and which I have been developing since; it is inspired by pine needles spread on the snow.  In this class, we are going to learn how to make a pattern for felt garments which incorporate the Pine Needles technique.”   -Leiko

Leiko is one of my favorite people as well as a feltmaking “hero”. She has been a guest instructor at my studio for many years, and I always learn so much. Leiko possesses an uncommon knowledge and understanding of wool- both behaviors and properties.  She has an elegant, organic aesthetic, with an eye for color and form.  Also an unyielding standard for producing technically excellent feltwork- a goal you will achieve in this workshop.

The jacket Leiko will be teaching in this workshop is a design she wears regularly and I have been COVETING for ages. I’m so excited to finally have the opportunity to create one of my very own!  Most of you know I wear my felt all the time, and this jacket is a very wearable garment. Much less bulky than the felt coats I own.  Please join us at Luckystone to make a beautiful, practical well made jacket!
 NOTE This class is for intermediate to advanced feltmakers.
