This will be a masterclass of guided artistic practices that will address the whole experience of Felt Textile Sculpture in a synesthetic way and focus on providing participants not only with a set of techniques to create textures, reliefs and compositions but, above all, explore personal connections and evocations with the raw material and to develop an honest and coherent artistic practice with an individual journey in the universe of fibers and felt.

This workshop is based on three moments. In the first, a brief presentation of the raw material is made, and some basic Felt sculpture techniques are introduced: base assembly, spherical reliefs and

base, spherical and cylindrical reliefs, wavy and lacy textures, lashings or shibori.

The second moment will be a project development session with a huge focus on the personal voice of each participant and its conceptual connection with the Felting process, colors and shapes. The base project on which creativity is practiced takes the form of a metaphorical map on which each person will develop their artistic landscape.

The final moment will be the formal creation of the art object through technique and sensory exploration. The final result is the negotiation between the initial project, the personality of the fibres and the way the author's intention is transmitted by the hands. It is in this equation, in this balance and in the conscious and unconscious choices of what we keep and what we throw away during the manufacturing moment that we create in the first person.

This Masterclass will be guided by the textile artist Ana Rita de Albuquerque (Volume Atelier).
