27th January - Karen Price - needle felting
Karen creates needle felted paintings using fine merino wool and other fibres. This is a relatively new technique that is also known as dry felting. Instead of the traditional method of fusing the fibres together using hot soapy water and friction they are fixed to a base of flat felt by piercing with a barbed needle. From a distance the pictures are often mistaken for paintings and that is why Karen calls them 'needle felted paintings'.
24th February - Paul Szellar - clay modelling
24th March - Edward MacMillan - water colour town scapes
