Enjoy this lovely pastoral country in all its autumn glory. Capture aspects of it from life, in watercolour. Come away with your visual record of meeting it personally, and an increased understanding of watercolour painting.
For over 30 years Fiona has loved depicting aspects of nature in watercolour, from the patterns of bark and leaf litter to landscapes, and from quick sketches from life to botanical art and decorative illustration. She has studied from fine Art at TAFE to a PhD in Natural History Illustration at the University of Newcastle. Currently she is working on her 3 rd volume of illuminated manuscripts.
Nuno felting is the integration of fabric and wool. Each of these have their own unique properties and together they can make the most beautiful medium to create scarves, wraps and garments.
In this 2 day class we will experiment with some of the variety of techniques available to create surface design and ultimately create a beautiful scarf.
From a background of Studio Ceramics Pam has worked now in the field of Textile Art for 16 years. Primarily a felt maker she explores, through innovation, the many ways wool can be formed and coaxed into new and interesting forms. Pam is also a natural dye and printmaker, using her home of the Blue Mountains as a constant source of inspiration and colour. Organic forms and texture are a common theme throughout her work, with the various properties of wool and the colours of nature influencing each piece.
