3d Fibre and Stitch: Under the Sea : Joanna Pout

‘Under the Sea’ lives a wondrous micro-world of marine life with its amazing variety of creatures and colours which provides a rich source of inspiration to the budding textile artist.  Learn various techniques including needlefelting, embroidery, die-cutting and collage.  Use a mixture of different textile and craft materials and together with these techniques, make items and elements to assemble on a felted fabric background. 

On this course we will be using a handmade felt fabric background and embellishing with various threads, fabrics and embellishments.  We will start stitching into our background felt using different threads and yarns creating texture , colour and detail.  We will start to build dimension with die-cut elements, ready made yarns and craft materials.  Adding 3d coral reef elements including seaweed, beaded anemones, felt ball sea urchins, stitched starfish and scallops, silk cocoon jellyfish and other quirky fish.  Finally we’ll add our embellishments of beads, sequins and found items.  The three-dimensional effect gives charm and vitality to a unique textile illustration. 

A £10 charge will be made to the tutor for the supply of the hand felted background.
