Create your own delightful mouse by sculpting with fabric with Bryony. Under her tuition you will explore ways to suggest character and form using wire, textiles and stitch. If you have been saving your most treasured pieces of fabrics, lace and embellishments – then you have found the right project as these can be used to personalise your own unique sculpture. Take a look at Bryony’s website:
Bryony Rose Jennings:
I am a textile sculptor living on the beautiful Hampshire coast.
The Textile Menagerie is my imaginary story land of creatures.
I use reclaimed textiles in my work,
a soft, worn medium that carries the imprints of lives previously encountered.
Old cloth, conveying a sense of history, lends itself perfectly to my endeavours. My making process is slow, manipulating fabric into form,
allowing a personality to develop organically as I wrap, fold, stitch and stuff.
I aim to weave a little soul and magic into every beastie I create.
My depictions are stylised, obviously inspired by the animals of our world,
but not an attempt to replicate that beauty and perfection.
Instead the idea of a specific species informs a more surreal interpretation, unbound by reality.
