Master felt maker Dagmar Binder is currently artist in residence at the Shirdak Silk Road Textile Gallery. She presents ‘Familiar Strangers’, her new collection of 3D structural felt wall hangings and other felt art works & wearables, on Saturday 6th October to Saturday 18th December 2012.
In her own words, Dagmar Binder explains her inspiration: ‘Combining painting with coloured fibers, 3D felting and other textile techniques, I am exploring the expressive and sculptural potential of felt.’
For many years now, Shirdak sells beautiful felt scarves and hats, designed and made by the very talented Dagmar Binder. In the words of Shirdak’s owner Marianne Tuerlings: ‘Her great felting technic, sense of colour and new shapes are always a surprise and brings you back into memories of nature.’
All are welcome – from Sat 6th October!
