The whole last week I had a private student from Switzerland. The first half part of the week Irmgard learned how to “build” a landscape and the nexy half part of the week she made an eagle with the raw fleece technique. Irmgard was also on a course by me nearly exactly a year ago, where she learned to make a lions mask.
It was perfect that she could now stay at a hotel two minutes from my studio.
The landscape course was with the technique, where you make a fantasy-picture, that slowly comes forward the way you build the landscape.
At the eagle course you work with raw wool-stables and a piece of fleece for the body and wings, that already was felted on the sheep.
