SALT SPRING FELTING SCHOOL - Creating Art from Within 2020

TO ALL FELTMAKING ENTHUSIASTS
A Happy New Year 2020 to you, wishing you a year of creativity and full self-expression in the arts and anything you do!

This spring I am holding workshops in Ganges at my current studio, 127 Rainbow Road and at ArtSpring, where you have lots of space for your projects. Classes for each workshop are small, a maximum of three persons in my studio (lucky You!) and no more than eight participants in the Artspring Gallery space. You will receive lots of attention and support for each of your creations in both set ups.

Since I am renting the workshop space at Artspring, I need to ask you to sign up as much in advance as possible to assure that the workshop is going to take place. Thank you for your cooperation.

All class fees include coffee, tea and goodies. You can register by phone, 250-537-1723, or by email. Please note that you can transfer funds via PayPal (ulrieke@ulriekebenner.com) or send an e-transfer to ulrieke@ulriekebenner.com.

Please call me with any questions you may have.

If you prefer, you can leave your car at home, and stay directly in Ganges and walk to the classes. I offer to pick you up from any of the 3 BC-Ferry terminals on the island!

A material list and workshop location will be sent to you after sign up.

I look forward to working with you!
— Ulrieke

DOUBLE FACED NUNO FELTED SHAWLS

“A comprehensive introduction into layered & sandwiched nuno felting techniques”

I invite you to join me in this fun and innovative workshop in which I’ll guide you technically and artistically through the process of creating your own unique piece of wearable art. Whether you’re new to feltmaking or have experience, this workshop suits all levels.

All that’s required is a spirit of adventure, an open mind and a readiness to get creative.

Using silk and only the finest merino wool, we’ll use two different layers of transparent silk fabric in either separate pieces or collage-style. Then, by manipulating the fabrics and encasing them with fine wisps of merino wool and either monochromatic or colour decorative elements, we’ll create captivating and unusual textural surfaces.

Sample shawls on the left or you can make your own fabric to use for other pieces such as a vest.

Coffee, tea and snacks are included. You can either bring your own lunch or there are several cafes within short walking distance.

STRIPES & COLOUR
Fashioning Pattern Design in Nuno Felting

Stripe lovers rejoice!
Join me in this innovative workshop that focuses on the dynamics of colour and stripe design in silk and wool. Stripe pattern can be found all around us, in architecture, art, nature, and, of course, in fashion!
Stripes are one of the classic forms of design.

In this workshop we will explore stripe patterns in multiple colours. You will create a shawl, wrap, poncho, or fabric yardage and choose a stripe sequence with broad or fine lines, diagonal or V-shaped rhythmical stripes a la Missoni or a more wavy and irregular stripe pattern.

I will guide you through basic design processes for balance in composition and matching colour combinations.

We will use silk and finest merino wool for your personal light weight striped fashion accessory for all seasons.

Materials will be an additional cost to the workshop or you might like to  bring along your own.
Please contact me in advance about your plans. All levels of experience in feltmaking, beginners to advanced, welcome.

$295 plus $14.75 GST and materials 
Coffee, tea and goodies are included.
