Teaching - 4 Workshops and aTalk


White on White
Venue: Stirling Street Arts Centre, Bunbury




Exploring texture in surface design with natural fibres, using the wet Felting process.

Felt making offers a contemplative art process with an element of serendipity: join me for a creative and relaxing workshop.

Working with white superfine merino wool offers a magical surface on which additions are immersed but retain a distinctive texture or line.

Suited to all levels, working individually to suit your experience and ideas.
