Jo Polack – ‘Felt Fantastic’ An introduction to Feltmaking


Medium: Felt
Date/Time: Monday 17th September 2018, 10am - 4pm
Price: £55


There are few things as beautiful as the colours and textures of felt making, and this workshop will equip you with the skills to use this ancient art to create stunning work of your own. Jo will take you step-by-step through the process of wet felting and you will make a range of small samples before using what you have learned to create larger pieces, with the tutor on hand for guidance. Everyone will leave the workshop with a picture, a wall hanging, or pieces to add to other textile arts and crafts.

Jo Polack is a textile artist living and working in St Agnes. Her felt work and layered mixed media embroidery is inspired by the ecosystems of our Cornish coastal waters, and for the past decade she has worked in community arts running events, workshops and projects that encourage people to explore the environment through creativity.

Her felt work and her layered mixed media embroidery is largely inspired by the detail in the ecosystems of our Cornish coastal waters, working closely with marine ecologists, local divers, fishermen and conservation charities. Her ‘Stitch Maps’ of local towns and landscapes are also much sought after.

All abilities very welcome.

Please bring an apron and wear clothes that you don’t mind getting wet!
