AN ANCESTRAL TECHNIQUE

Creating felt help us recall our ancestors. It takes us back to the origin of
the human creation.

sheep to cover our bodies and houses. Wool, heat, humidity and friction: A

MAKING BOWLS

– APPLICATION OF RESISTS –

There is not an exact date when resists were used in wet felting, but it can
be dated back to the times when felt was created. By using 3D resists or
the human body, objects such as coats, boots, socks, hats, etc. were
made. The use of flat resists is a modern approach used popularly in the
making of bowls/vessels.
In this 4-hour workshop we will learn the art of making felted bowls. From
the selection of threads and robbing wool brought from Colombia to the
final touches that will make your bowl unique. Also you will learn how to
apply this same technique to make other products such as socks, gloves,
beanies and hats.
Tutor: Maria Lucia LondoƱo from Ata Felting Design
Time: 4 hours
All students will be given kit materials that include a virtual instruction
guide to continue practicing this art at home.
