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 -
