Join me at Atelier Studio Gallery, where you will find everything that you will need to hand form your own illuminated fibre art tube. This is your opportunity to create a miniature of one of my striking Fibre Art Light Tubes.

You will choose silk fibres from a generous selection of colours, hand dyed by my favourite fibre-dying artisans. Learn how to subtly build up wispy fine layers of colour and texture to create an eye catching, delicate artwork

I will lead you step-by-step through the process from my centrally located demonstration table. During this class, you will learn the principles of fibre layout for fine felt, the use of silk fibres for surface design and felting around a resist. Your felted fibre art tube will be shaped and formed to slide snugly over a styrene tube support (this is the material that is used to support fabric lamp shades).

You will leave the class with your light tube completed, requiring nothing more than a few hours to dry.

Once dry, watch your fibre art come to life as you arrange your 5m string of copper wire seed lights inside. These are powered via a USB, so no need for batteries - pop your artwork on your desk so that you can plug it into your computer or position it near any power outlet and plug it into a USB adaptor (the same one that you use to charge your cell phone is ideal!)

Finished Light Tube Size: Height - 30 cm, Diameter - 12 cm
