This felting workshop lead by Icelandic artist Anna Gunnarsdottir will explore both sculpture possibilities and lighting. You will first learn to felt a shell form which can then be decorated. When you put a light inside a form made of wool, it is very beautiful. The radiated light is charming, calming and pleasant to watch in the dark winter nights. Participants will then move on to using their imagination to make different forms and shapes, putting them together to make a sculpture. The pieces can be decorated as a wall-piece or a standing-work. You will learn new techniques in this field and let your imagination go wild.
