Felt Folding Jewellery or Small Objects

with Andrea Noeske-Porada

Inspired by Origami artists like Paul Jackson, Eric Gjerde and others, Andrea will guide participants through the process of creating intricate, felted, three-dimensional structures for jewellery and small felt objects. Andrea will bring along samples of her own work, developed in the style of these artists.

The workshop starts off by folding a paper model and moves on to working in prefelt which forms the basis of further work. The construction process starts with a flat surface and one of the most important elements will be the building up of sharp, clean edges and forms.

Some experience in felting is necessary and participants should enjoy making three dimensional constructions. Advanced maths skills are not required!
