05016 Ficulle(TR) Italia - 'Al settimo cielo'

Felting, a versatile course for advanced students and starters

Alsettimocielo, arte e cucina, translates to 'in the seventh heaven, art and cooking'. Alsettimocielo is an enchanted place in the south of Umbria, Italy, between Florence and Rome, almost in the border triangle, formed by Umbria, Tuscany and Lazio.

In these courses various techniques are offered, like surface structures, nuno, layers, 3-d, modeling felt, the Turkmenian technique and if required free embroidery on felt is possible.
Each participant can work on her/his level and on one (or more) object(s) to their own choice. This makes the course interesting for starters as well as advanced students.
We can work with various techniques.
Three-dimensional (women)-figures we make in modeling felt. With wool and luke-warm soapy water we build up the sculpture, where in the beginning absolutely no felting is allowed. Only when the last (colour)-layer is in place we begin to close the skin by felting it. Then we work deeper and deeper and modeling we create the final shape and posture.
It is also possible to felt in motifs in wall decorations, bags, hats or whatever. For example Etruscan motifs, because the Etruscans populated this area of Italy 3000 years ago, but you are free to make other choices. Nothing is obligated.
Combinations with other felt techniques are possible.
We work 4 consecutive days, guided by Annemie. On the 5th day we go on an excursion, so you can experience this fantastic region a bit more. Not that the terrain of Alsettimocielo is not worth it, but it is also interesting to know how it is embedded in the region, the culture, the (art)history...
Annemie Koenen is an experienced felt artist and gifted teacher, well-known for her broad and deep knowledge of making quality felt.
During the course we will go on an excursion to an inspiring place of interest.
