✦ Can't wait
After a couple of weeks in lockdown the local team of creatives at Wauchope Creative Hub are bursting at their seams to get back into their co-op.
Creative director Stu Doherty said he’s been checking in with the 20 or so local arts and crafts people who make up the WCH cooperative and while a stay-at-home order provides time for creating, “we can’t wait to rejoin our community again” is the general consensus.
October 2021 at The Hub is exciting with new products from many of our members, having extra time to create recently!
Watercolour workshops are in full swing, and this term sees a new class of beginners plus two new courses; landscapes and botanical studies.
Stay tuned for more photos of these workshops as they progress.
WET FELTING WORKSHOP
Wauchope Creative Hubs resident fibre artist Chris Pearce recently ran a sold out Wet Felting workshop to the delight of the locals who attended.
Chris is a well known local artist and one of the directors of Wauchope Creative Hub.
Chris recently told us, "There is something very peaceful and creative taking plain sheep wool, mohair or alpaca fibre and magically creating a unique piece of colourful art fabric.
"Each piece of handmade felt is completely unique because there is no way you can duplicate the many intricacies of each lock of wool and fibre.”
Wet felting is the process of combining layers of wool roving and/or wool yarns into one flat piece of felt fabric or art piece.
This process is one of the oldest methods of fabrication.
Chris uses Australian merino wool and has been creating unique felted pieces for over a decade, her beautiful one off designs are available for purchase from Wauchope Creative Hub and she will be running more felting workshops in the next few months.
