Felting Workshop in Co. Mayo
Fiona Wright is a practicing artist, formally based in Gresford, rural NSW, Australia,
now relocated to Pushkar, India and visiting Ireland in May exclusively for this workshop. She considers her work a Fine Arts practice and has taught and exhibited throughout the world.
She will be teaching a 2-day SUMPTIOUS SURFACES course at the new E.O.M. Arts Studio in Mulranny,
Using simple techniques based on felting we will combine wool and silk to make rich sumptuous 'fabrics'. Starting with a 2 meter long backing, you will be shown a number of printing techniques to add another layer to the pieces and explore possibilities of metal foils and the colour combining possibilities of the layering techniques.
These fabrics are ideal to use in art quilts and garments.
