Art in the landscape: Leaf Tornado! (Felt-making workshop)
Kirklees Recovery College, Kirklees Recovery & Wellbeing College, Pathways, Nettleton Rd, Mirfield, WF14 9AQ
Life skills and interests
Join us for this creative workshop and learn the ancient art of felt making. Come along and have a go, and be involved in a collaborative art installation for Art in the Landscape, part of Holmfirth Arts Festival, where our work will be displayed in a Community Garden.
In just a few hours, with an explosion of colour and fun, we will create hand felted leaves that will become a Leaf Tornado, picking up on the theme of this year’s Holmfirth Arts Festival, ‘Forces of Nature’. Our Leaf Tornado will be a symbol of our ever-changing emotions, and the whirlwind and chaos that can sometimes accompany them, whilst also representing the changing seasons as a symbol of renewal, hope, movement, strength, and clearing the debris to start afresh and revitalised!
Our finished leaves will be attached to a metal frame and displayed at New Mill Community Garden during Holmfirth Arts Festival, and then returned to the Recovery & Wellbeing College afterwards.
All materials will be provided.
