Collaborative Collisions III

Improvisations with Southdowns Herdwick sheep wool and other found and rescued materials.

21 – 23 September, 10.00 – 17.00, Lewes Depot, Pinwell Rd, BN7 2JS map

MLF’s popular Collaborative Collisions returns after a year off. This year’s improvisational workshop draws together a diverse group of makers, crafts people, and designers to meet a design challenge integrating local sheep wool and other materials.

Over 3 days a fantastical felt coat of changing seasons will be created from local sheep fleece (and a bit of local alpaca fleece too). Come and join Barbara Keal, Owena Lewis and others in any stage of the process from washing fleece through to making a felt leaf or animal motif to be added to the coat. Then on Sunday come and have this wild hooded garment lowered on to you.

This years Collaborative Colliders include:

Barbara Keal  – Felt Maker and artist

Owena Lewis – Farmer & wool producer

Fred Baier – Furniture Maker

Further Collaborative Colliders to be announced

Expect the unexpected
