Textiles | 3D Sculptural Vessels in Felt with Denise Lithgow

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Join popular textile artist Denise Lithgow for this inspiring and creative sculptural workshop. In this one-day workshop, you will design and create a unique sculptural vessel using pure merino wool. Denise will guide you through the process of making and molding felt into innovative forms and shapes. You will learn how to translate these into 3-dimensional non-functional vessels. Denise will guide you through the design and creation process, introducing you to techniques and materials.

Denise Lithgow is one of Australia’s leading textile artists, who exhibits widely and regularly in Australia and Internationally. She has had solo and group exhibitions and won many sculptural prizes. Growing up on a sheep property in South Australia has instilled a deep love of merino wool.  She works with vivid colours inspired by the landscape. Her 2D felt pictures and 3D sculptured felt vessels are colourful, vibrant, semi-abstracts inspired by her love of the landscape.
