Join artist Phoebe Wahl for a day of sewing & snipping as we create one of a kind fabric sculptures. Made from almost entirely re-purposed materials, this workshop will focus specifically on creating four legged creatures. There will be an emphasis on explorative processes of working as we allow our creations to tell us how they want to be made, and allow ourselves to play, connect and think outside the pattern & out of the book.
