Anna Gunnarsdottir's sea shells

We were proud to have guest tutor Anna Gunnarsdottir with us for a two day workshop on the 3/4th October. Anna is an internationally renowned flet sculptor fanour for her beautiful felt pods. We worked on making sculptural hats using beautiful Icelandic wool and fish skins/sea leather.

We were very luck to have received a grant from the Crafts Council of Ireland to help with the cost of running the workshop. it was a very productive and inspirational week-end. Anna encouraged all the participants to let their imagination take over and she was extremely gnerous with her time and sharing her knowledge. She is heading off to Paris to take up a two month residency in preparation for an exhibition which will take place in India next year.
