About Us

The Courtyard Gallery

The gallery is run as a Community Interest Company (CIC) and is a vibrant community arts space, putting you in touch with local artists and local arts resources. The gallery exhibits the work of twenty local artists who take turns in stewarding the gallery, and offer both a friendly welcome as well as information about the artists and their processes. 

You will find a wide selection of affordable local creative work here, from artist-made cards and gifts to original contemporary art for your home and garden.

FELTING WORKSHOPS
WITH JACQUI SMITHSON

'Images in Felt'
Mon 27 May


Jacqui will be teaching the technique of wet felting whilst incorporating threads, silks and other fabrics into the process. Wet felting is great fun to do and you don't need any previous experience. Jacqui will guide you from start to finish and help you to produce a panel of textured felt with the design and colours of your choice. You will be using pre-carded Merino wool as a base for your artwork. This is a wonderful wool to use and felts exceptionally well. Other interesting fabrics can then be laid within the fibres and felted together.

Once you are happy with your design, the fibres are matted together by using hot soapy water and a bit of elbow grease! A little rubbing and rolling will mesh the fibres together. If you like making pastry, you will love this! Watch the felt appear before your eyes.

FELTING WORKSHOPS 
WITH JACQUI SMITHSON


'Vessels and Forms' 

Sun 28 April, Sat 22 June

Jacqui will be teaching the technique of 3D wet felting whilst incorporating threads, silks and other fabrics into the process. You will be guided from start to finish to make a small vessel/bowl with the design and colours of your choice. We will be using pre-carded Merino wool and woolly batts as a base as these types of wool work well together to make robust 3D shapes.

Once your design is complete, the fibres are matted together round a relief or a large dome shape and hot soapy water is then poured over the wool. A slightly different technique to flat felting in that the wool is worked together whilst keeping its shape around the dome or relief.

All materials will be provided, but if you have any interesting threads that you would like to incorporate please bring them along. Previous experience of felting would be an advantage but is not essential.
