Make a Hanging Pod Felt Workshop

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

9 Apr 2022 Once Only Event

Saskia Everingham, Eden Unearthed artist, will take you through the basics of felt making.

Participants will learn the art of felt-making and go home with a pod to hang in your garden to create your own backyard habitat.

No previous experience required. Adults & teens.

This workshop is a result of the award winning installation called “Refuge” by Saskia. “Refuge” is a response to recent bushfires, with the fanciful pods representing homes for displaced wildlife. As Everingham reflected, “My work for Eden Gardens was inspired by my experience during the 2019 bushfires in the Blue Mountains. My family was evacuated and I was aware- for weeks later -of large flocks of birds circling in the air, looking for homes, as theirs had been destroyed. So my work was an offering of refuge for not only the birds but all humans as well who are currently wandering homeless. It is an issue that will not go away soon.

Felt is the perfect material; not only is the wool cosy and enduring, even outside, but it is also a natural and sustainable material.
