Wool has a unique ability: when made into felt it shrinks. Sometimes unintentionally, I’m sure we have all shrunk a jumper of two. When this characteristic is used intentionally, differing rates of shrinkage can be turned into a method of shaping objects. Working our way through the Trio of Pots we will learn how to manipulate and shape felt into structurally sound and beautiful objects.
I’m Soosie Jobson a Fremantle based, felt & textile artist, author and historian. I have been an Educator for 30 years holding a Bachelor of Education, and have taught all kinds of things in the business and tech world but now I love to teach creative arts. The path through my creative life has taken me through many different media, but my main love is felting.
For the past 15 years I have dabbled with all forms of felting winning awards and prizes along the way, but I always come back to the sculptural side which is perfectly paired with some of my other obsessions; Coral Reefs, and Cactus Gardens to name a of few.
