In addition to the shape of the 2-D resist, explore how varying the density of wool in a given area effects shrinkage rates and can provide more control to sculpt desired forms and forms previously unimaginable. Participants will make a thick, partially felted sheet of fiber with low shrinkage to cut distinct shapes from and apply with strategic placement in their high shrinkage layouts. This juxtaposition of shrinkage extremes along with directional agitation (perimetral shrinkage) will determine which areas become a kind of integrated armature and which areas protrude or become concave. Proper fulling and the thickness of the vessel’s wall in relationship to its volume will determine the forms integrity. Hand stitched structural ribbing, steam blocking and shellac stiffening can then be applied to refine the forms posture and presence.
