Just Add Water: Felted Bowl Workshop

$60.00

Artist/Instructor: Linda Collignon
Sunday, March 3, 1:00-4:00 PM
Fee: $50 for members/$60 for not yet members 
*All supplies included.

Felt making is a fiber tradition that predates hand-woven fabric. Participants will create a three-dimensional wool felted vessel using a resist technique that will take our two-dimensional work into a hollow form that can be shaped and manipulated. Handles can be added with cutouts placed thoughtfully to create your bowl.

 

Linda Collignon is a fiber artist with a studio in North Tonawanda. She studied Communications Design at the University at Buffalo and Textile & Surface Design at Buffalo State College. Her work has been featured in group exhibitions throughout the WNY region, including the 2011 and 2013 Art in Craft Media shows at the Burchfield Penney Art Center, a juried exhibition at Art Dialogue in Buffalo (2012), Fiber Faire at the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester (2011), and Nancy Belfer: A Circle of Influence at Indigo Gallery in Buffalo (2011).

"As our lives become more and more hurried, I become more and more interested in those things that take time. My sculptural works are to be included in that category. Where I used to create pieces in which all the design elements were part of the initial process, I now create those pieces and then deconstruct, reconstruct, weave, stitch and further manipulate. Each sculpture is the now the result of combining several pieces, and many textures. I have also begun to manipulate the handmade paper that I make by spinning or "felting" that as well, sometimes even taking it further by knitting or weaving the spun paper.
