felt

During the second week of the easter holidays we welcomed over 1000 participants into my felt making workshops for families at The Hepworth Wakefield. People loved making felt - the alchemy, the magic of transforming materials with their hands. Some adults without little ones popped their heads round the door too, and asked if they could have a go... fantastic... the more the merrier.

Here are some of the children's designs inspired by the collection in Gallery 6: Hepworth & St Ives.
