Description

Feathers – The Next Level – Workshop – 2hrs
 
Have you used feathers on your hat before but you couldn’t get them to look the way you wanted? Maybe you’ve seen a feather seeming to defy gravity on a piece and wished you could do the same. Well, this workshop is for you. Beyond the basics, we will be looking at using feathers for dramatic effect.
 
What will we teach?
Shaping feathers
Advanced mounting techniques
Covering shapes with feathers
Feather mounts
We will work toward a small piece in this workshop
 
Level: Intermediate – Previous experience with feathers or an introductory feather class is required. You should know how to strip, cut and generally use a feather.
 
Tutor: Lindsay Whitehead
 
What to bring:
 
Many of the feathers and supplies will be used on the same piece, so please make sure your feathers look good together.
 
6 Turkey Broads (Wing feathers)
Pk 100 goose nagoire (you may wish to have more than one colour that coordinate)

          Coque tails

          Biots
 
Also, you will need a pair of sharp scissors. A pair with a sharp point is beneficial.
