Workshops with Nessa McCormack

Felt Making Classes – Textile Art

Ancient techniques and contemporary designs in Felt making

Nessa2Weekly classes will begin on Tuesday 9th September in Kilpedder, co. Wicklow, (near Greystones) 10.30 til 1 pm. ( other class times available on request).

We will experiment with a range of felt making techniques including Nuno, Shibori, and working with templates to make beautiful vessels, bags or any 3D shape that can be applied to felt to create striking three-dimensional effects in your felted fabric. The main focus is on experimentation and discovery.

Inspired by beauty in simple form, Nessa’s style brings together her love and fascination of the natural world and felt making in sculptural form.

Nessa has been exploring and teaching shibori and nuno felting techniques in her more recent works and is particularly interested in the contemporary approach of binding metal pieces with delicate fibres such as silk and lace with wool.

These classes are suitable for beginner to advanced felt-makers of all levels

classes cost €25 and include coffee, tea and cake.
