SOLD OUT! Sorry, this workshop is now full. If you would like to join the waiting list or be informed of when the next workshop is schduled please message me. 


Influenced by the colours and landscape during a trip to Iceland, I began experimenting with the cracked mud and craters resist techniques to make felt with fissures in their surfaces.


I have designed this workshop day to combine this inspiration and explore how to use the 'cracked mud' technique in flat and 3d surfaces. You can choose between making a 3d vessel, samples to master the technique or create a panel (for future use as a wall piece or to make into a cushion) incorporating your cracked mud design.


I will supply images from Iceland for your colour platte and design inspiration, and encourage you to bring along your own images of geographical fissures  from the land of 'Fire & Ice' or elsewhere, to work with too.


During the workshop you will;

- Be working with Corriedale batts

- learn how to create a template for your own cracked mud design

- Understand how to layout wool batts

- Learn how to make a resist pattern for a bowl or cushion


This is a great opportunity to learn several new techniques during a one day workshop and apply them to creating a finished object.

A most enjoyable day! Emma’s studio was warm and welcoming and was a lovely space in which to work. Emma was an excellent tutor, explaining each stage of the feltmaking process clearly and answering any questions that arose along the way. She provided a fantastic array of materials and taught us techniques for using them to best advantage .
