An Introduction to Wet Felting with Maggie Scott

2 October 2021
1:00 pm
5:00 pm

Join artist Maggie Scott aboard the ONCA Barge for an introduction to wet felting processes and create your own piece of textile art to take home.

Well-known for her sumptuously crafted felt textiles to wear, for the last decade Maggie’s exhibition works draw on the aesthetic and symbolic potential of the laborious process of felting. Her hand-felted re-interpretations of photographic images often explore the tensions and contradictions of a Black British identity. Her large-scale works and abstract wall hangings are full of colour and often incorporate stitch and collage.

Explore Maggie’s practice and be inspired to create your own piece during this gentle and creative session. The session will take you from design to creation, providing an opportunity to explore colour, whilst introducing the tools and processes of wet felting which can be replicated from home.

Find out more about Maggie Scott on her website.
