Barbara Binns has been a teacher and felt maker for the past 10 years and seeks to share her enjoyment of a very ancient textile art with others through a diverse range of art projects.
She has worked with children to create products such as hats and bags as a component of a fashion project, worked with teachers to support curriculum learning through art and most recently has developed projects using the natural environment as inspiration. She has also been involved with Cargo projects working with schools to create felted murals.
In using this medium many of Barbara’s pieces create images inspired by the environment with colour, line, texture and form created by the natural movement of the fibre when worked during the felting process.
Felting is a wonderful, tactile medium with which individuals can express themselves creatively through textiles in a vibrant and unique way.
Workshops discussed and developed for particular requirements.
