Students will work with acclaimed jewellery maker Lesley Frew to make ornate jewellery from plastic bags! They will use techniques in heat fusing to create beads and hand stitched flower embellishments and will end up with a beautiful bracelet or necklace to take home.

Please bring a good selection of colourful plastic bags, some metal skewers, pins, needles, elastic thread and a pair of scissors.

Feltmaking in 3D

Date: 18th August

Learn how to make a colourful 3D bowl using the process of feltmaking with textile artist, Nicola Farrell.  She will teach the 'enclosed resist' method of building up layers of wool on both sides of a flat plastic 'resist' or template.  The form is then manipulated by hand to create the shape.
