Ella is an award-winning product and textile designer and both she and Patrizia and Andrea of Urban Upholstery have worked and experimented widely with this ‘superior’ material to make furniture, carpets, fabrics and tapestries.
During the workshop they will demonstrate how to make a floor-cushion (60x60x15cm) using recycled wool, and the infamous Survivor Fabric made by Camira which incorporates recycled and virgin wool.
They will involve you in the skilled tasks of this process: stuffing, tufting and stitching the wool. Using an antique button-making tool, you will contribute and participate by making fabric covered buttons, which will then be used in the tufting process for the cushion. All participants’ names will go in a hat for a winner to be drawn and take home the cushion made on the day!
This event is part of a series of talks and events hosted by Ella Doran ‘Collaboration by Design’: in partnership with The Creative Edit, supported by Campaign for Wool.
