New Growth and Noongar Artists in Focus

Congratulations to our friends at FeltWEST who have an exhibition opening today 8.00 pm at the Mundaring Arts Centre.

In preparation for this exhibition FeltWest artists have been working with visiting international and national felt tutors; Charlotte Buch (Danish), Anita Larkin (ACT), Vilte Kazlauskaite (Lithuanian) and Marjolein Dallinga (Canadian) in a series of knowledge-sharing workshops. These visiting tutors have shared their techniques for wearable nuno-felt design, integrating found objects into sculptural pieces and creating light and textural felted fashion to bring a contemporary look to an ancient craft. 

Bunbury Felter and FeltWEST member Val Hornibrook has a piece in the exhibition so make sure you go and see it.

Reflection by Val Hornibrook

Val's piece is titled "Reflection" and is inspired by the workshop she completed with Canadian based Marjolein Dallinga in March this year.

Here we are with Marjolein -

And these are some of the things we made during the three day workshop -

 The New Growth exhibition runs until 8th July.
