Description

Felted Fibre Art Jewellery

Artist Bio

Judy Cooper is a Newfoundland textile artist whose award winning work has been shown in a number of juried exhibitions as part of the Craft Council of NL, in South Korea, Tokyo and Ireland. Other exhibitions include England, Ontario, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and a solo show in Chicago. Her work has been published and is included in several public and private collections.

Always interested in experimenting with different fibre based media, Judy became interested in needle felting after purchasing a felting machine about six years ago. Since then, she has experimented with a variety of wool and non-wool fibres, silk yarns, dyed cheese cloth, chiffon, silk hankie etc. to create needle felted ornaments, wall art, wearable art, brooches and fibre art pendants. Her pieces often include beads, hand embroidery and machine stitching.

The Workshop

This workshop is an introduction to flat needle felting using wool roving, decorative yarns, felt and glitzy threads.

Students will learn how to:

  • use a barbed needle to mat wool roving into a piece of felt
  • create an embellished surface on the felt, using decorative yarns, felt, and glitzy threads
  • machine and hand stitch onto the embellished surface (hand stitching is optional)
  • create a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art from the embellished felted base
  • create a wearable art brooch from the leftover felted base

Every participant will go home with a completed pendant and pretty fibre art brooch.
