JOSEPHINE GORNALL

Gornall_Josephine_Main-image

Josephine is intrigued by the alchemical and often unpredictable nature of the felting process. She enjoys working with vibrant, rich colours, transforming a myriad of wool, plant fibres, threads and fabrics into felted relief and sculptural pieces. I also make a range of fibre felted jewellery embellished with wire, beads and stitch with some upcycled materials.

Sources of inspiration include the vast oceans surrounding our lands with elements of primal and ancient symbols. Sometimes incorporating discarded detritus into the artwork relevant to a place or moment in time. Or embedding found organic matter juxtaposing photographs, that she has taken within the layered, textural surface.

Studio based at The Birchcliffe centre in a lovely old converted chapel in Hebden Bridge. She also runs a variety of felting and textile workshops and classes.
