The cafe gallery, Whisby Nature Park
Until Sunday 24 September
“Creating with wool is one of the oldest arts and crafts known to mankind, stretching back thousands of years: yet needle felting is a relatively new art form. “
Using a special needle to work wool fibres together, Hannah Price creates needle felted pictures in her garden studio in a small village near Sleaford. Her inspiration for her work comes from nature; whether it’s flowers in a hedgerow, a local hillside, or the coastline of Britain. “I love the way that a natural material – in this case sheep wool – can be used to create a picture of nature itself. I believe this adds a special quality to all needle felted art.” says Hannah.
As well as working in felt, Hannah also teaches local workshops and courses for all abilities, and has given talks and demonstrations throughout Britain.
Hannah will be running a drop-in needle felting workshop and demonstration in the Natural World Centre workshop space downstairs on: Monday 14 August between 10.30am – 12.30pm. The cost is £2 per person (children must be accompanied and aged 6+).
This exhibition, curated by artsNK in partnership with Whisby Natural World Centre, is one of an ongoing series of exhibitions which aims to display the creative talent of locally-based artists and voluntary and community arts groups based in North Kesteven.
