Felt & Stitch workshop at The Hepworth Wakefield

Felt & Stitch workshop at The Hepworth Wakefield

Learn to felt and stitch with artist Helen Riddle

If you want to learn more about felting and surface stitching, then head to The Hepworth Wakefield for the weekend of 26-27 January 2019 and take part in local artist Helen Riddle's Felt & Stitch: The Textile Garden Workshop. 10.30am - 4pm. Tickets: £120 / £90 Members

Taking inspiration from the designs for The Hepworth Riverside Gallery Garden, this new year workshop will combine wet felting techniques with the opportunity to try needle felting, using an embellisher, free-motion machine embroidery and hand stitch to create your own garden hanging or decorative panel.
 
The workshop starts by examining basic wet felting techniques and looking at garden plans and planting schemes. You'll then plan a wet felting background for your panel, making firm foundation layers and adding colour, shape and movement to the surface layer by incorporating different fibres, half-felts and pre-felts.
