Taking inspiration from origami artists such as Paul Jackson, Eric Gjerde and others, Andrea will guide you through the process of creating intricate, yet striking three-dimensional constructions and foldings that can be used to form felted jewellery and small objects.

The workshop begins with a paper model to get you familiar with the folding techniques, before moving on to produce the prefelt which forms the basis of the workshop.

Starting with a flat prefelt surface, during the process of felting, you will build up defined and clear edges and forms that will be durable over time. In this way you will create your felted jewellery pieces or small objects. This unique approach in handmade felt is also applicable to other projects and felted forms.

This masterclass is suitable for those with some experience of felting, but mathematical understanding is unnecessary!

About the tutor

Andrea has engaged in artistic practice since the ‘70s, where she was particularly interest in abstract, reduced, and form-based spatial art. She discovered felt’s potential for spatial creation in 2004 and studied at the Felt School in Oberrot, Germany to learn more about the material. Since then, felt has been one of her favourite materials for making sculptures.

The construction itself takes precedence in Andrea’s work, although the changeability and the liveliness of the finished object are also important to her.
