About this course
In this 4 lesson course Moy will guide you through all aspects of how to create your own unique felted tree paintings. The first lesson concentrates on gathering inspirational reference materials in the form of keeping a visual diary, photos and mood boards. Lesson 2 shows how to make basic tree samples and 3 tree compositions. Lesson 3 concentrates on creating two larger compositions using techniques and reference from previous lessons. Lesson 4 focuses on embellishing in the form of needle felting, free motion machine stitching and finally hand stitching. Building a base, use of carders for colour blending and wet felting are demonstrated along the way. With a week between each lesson it is hoped this time will be used to develop the various techniques culminating in a personal style that is unique to each and every student. There is a weekly webinar each Monday where a slide show presentation of students work is shown and discussed. The weekly webinars are very popular with students offering a chance to see what each other are doing and a chance to touch base with Moy and ask questions relating to their work.
This course is suitable for all levels and abilities from anywhere in the world. As all the lessons are pre recorded students can play them at a time to suit. They can be played back over again and again. Webinars are live however are recorded so can also be watched back if you can's make it.
The course will be left for you to access for some weeks after the end date of the course giving you plenty time to make sure you can work through all the lessons.
