Rua Red Cafe Wall Space

Our new exhibition has opened in

Rua Red, South Dublin Arts Centre, Tallaght.

 It will run from 20th June to 20th July and offers an eclectic mix of felt and stitched pieces.

Mounted wall pieces include the very personal ‘Memories Faded – not Forgotten’ (Dee Kelly) and ‘My Mother’s Garden’ (Barbara Seery) to more abstract/symbolic work as in Rose Cronin’s piece ‘Ancestral Links’.

We are also exhibiting some intriguing contemporary jewellery and wearable felted art pieces in the pop up gallery.

Making felt lilys with Asta

At February’s monthly Make and Meet one of our members Asta Gauronskyte very kindly showed us how to make the beautiful felt lilies that she creates. If you were at our Christmas Exhibition you would have seen her beautiful botanically inspired couture on display. (image below)

Asta started us off with making the stamen She then showed us how to make the ‘petal’ part of the lily.

Asta explained how she had taken apart an actual lily to understand the shapes and form of it, when starting to make them.

You lay out your fibres in the shape of a heart

They are then wrapped around each other and felted to completion. You can see some of our finished results below
