About the Artist/Exhibition

Come and enjoy learning a new skill in convivial surroundings.

Feltmaking for beginners – learn to make felt with Liverpool artist, Catherine Carmyllie.

Felt is the oldest form of textile. Using just moisture, warmth and friction, fibres from plants & animals are turned into a fabric. The process is magical, relaxing and can be super creative. Catherine Carmyllie is a Liverpool based artist who learnt the skill of feltmaking in Scandinavia where she studied at an Arts & Crafts academy. In this workshop, she explains the process and provides a short demonstration with 1st hand examples. She will explore different techniques and ultimately, you will produce a small item to take away (framed textile piece, gift card, phone cover, teapot/egg cup covers, drinks coasters, jewellery, brooch). There will be a short 10 minute break half way through, refreshments available from the gallery cafe.

18th Oct, 10.30-4.30, £70 (full day includes lunch)
