Saturday Seminar: Felting with Brigitta Varadi

Sat, Apr 13, 2019

MARKINGS, Noel Ruana

During this hands-on workshop, MAD Artist Studios resident Brigitta Varadi will guide participants through the process of traditional wet felting. Varadi will use layers of wool roving to demonstrate the wet felting technique, which participants will use to design and complete their own two-dimensional felt fabric artwork. This workshop is suitable for all skill levels, and all supplies will be provided.

About the Artist

Brigitta Váradi is an artist, educator, curator, and residency director of Chashama North (chaNorth), a nonprofit organization supporting artists by giving them space to create and present their work, while fostering community development through the arts.

Utilizing painting, textile, video, and public engagement, Brigitta Varadi explores cultural traditions that relate to the invisible, everyday rituals of working life. She examines the disappearing traditions and daily activities of small, secluded communities around the world: from her grandmother mopping the kitchen floor several times a day to the “liberty” tea made by inhabitants of New York State and the marking system of the dwindling community of shepherds in Ireland.
