We are excited to have Fran Moreno come to us from Chile to teach a needle felt painting workshop.
GET TICKETS FOR THIS WORKSHOP ON EVENTBRITE:
In this workshop you will learn our needle felt painting methodology: artisanal technique, where through applications with the special needle you will be able to make two works based on the paintings of the great Vincent Van Gogh.
We use as a base for our painting a loom woven with natural wool, which will be intervened with natural fiber "fleece or felt" using and applying artistic concepts to our work. You will learn to apply color concepts (mix, lights, shadows), work space (it will help you with the distribution in your projects), perspective (you will recognize strong points for your projects), among others.
The workshop will be at our Neruda Arts Studios (see how to find us below); maximum 15 people.

"Being a teacher guides me to a democratization of the arts at a social level. I firmly believe that "art" should be for everyone, in all spaces and times, and it is we, the artists and artisans, who must keep this interest alive. I believe that art changes the world, and showing it helps.”
Using natural fibres enhances knowing the material and the technique, and It is an invitation to live an integral experience between textures, smells, colours, of the rain and landscapes of southern Chile, through the material and through the artist.
She lives on the Big Island of Chiloé, where in addition to teaching, she investigates the crafts of the area using natural fibres in her work. Self-taught, she specializes in the needle felting technique, in the area of two-dimensional painting.n She has participated in various national and international exhibitions, including; World Art Dubai (UAE) Violeta Para Todos, Reflections, and Exhibition Labyrinths of Love and Eroticism (all in Santiago de Chile).
