Felting with Multiple Resists with Justine Moody
gallery North
90 North Country Road
Setauket
6317512676

Now that you’ve mastered the concept of felting over a single resist to develop a hollow form, whether a felted slipper or a pod, it’s now time to build surface texture and dimension.  Not only will we add multi-layered resists to our form, we will also design our piece using collages of silk chiffon patches and various luxury fibers like locks and raw silk.  Learn how to incorporate the shibori technique for added surface design.  Use these techniques and create a beautiful sculpted wall hanging or a one of a kind felted bag.

Skill level: beginner

Local artisan, Justine Moody, has had a passion for working with fibers and clay since the day she discovered handcrafting. She is a fine art graduate from Pratt Institute and for over 10 years, owned a bright and bustling studio that nurtured the creativity of others by introducing them to two of her favorite mediums. Over the past few years however, Justine has focused her work on the grounding techniques of traditional wet felting using natural fibers and hand dyed fabrics. Justine’s current work consists of both non-functional three-dimensional pieces as well as an ethereal collection of nuno felted wearable art pieces and tapestries.

Date: December 2
Time: 10am- 1pm
Fee: $60
Materials fee: $18

Setauket
631-751-2676

December 6&13;
Fee: $160
12pm-4pm

In this exciting two-day workshop, accomplished artist Laura Westlake will teach you how to create exquisite images using colored pencils.

By the end of the workshop students will leave with a finished work of art or a piece that they can finish on their own.

A native Long Islander, growing up in Stony Brook, Laura Westlake is essentially a self-taught artist drawing and painting since the age of four.  Her love of nature and the outdoors has always been the inspiration for her work. Laura studied at Santa Barbara College in California, and The School Of Visual Arts in New York where she developed an interest in commercial illustration that lasted for 15 years.  Her career included work for television, magazines, portraiture, and book illustration.  She later turned her focus back to the fine arts in the late 1980′s painting subjects, which came from personal experience.

Students are responsible for bringing their own materials.  To see a complete list, please click the green button below.
