FIBRE ART WORKSHOPS
As a self taught fibre artist, Caroline has an intimate knowledge and understanding of her chosen medium, gained through her years of dedicated practise. Learn how she "paints" a picture using layers of coloured wool fibre and silks, the colours blending during the felting process to achieve an endless variety of colour combinations and surface textures.
Caroline is a warm and encouraging teacher who is dedicated to facilitating the creative expression of each individual. The basic principals of colour and composition will be covered, together with layering colours for blending.
Fibre is a medium that particularly lends itself to colourful and textural abstract works - participants are encouraged to let their creative hair down!
