Tamzen Lundy’s colourful exhibition FIBRE Felted introduces young people to the wonders and possibilities of felt making, the oldest textile making process in the world. Using 100% wool (and sometimes other natural fibres), soap and water plus rubbing, rolling and a little magic, the artist creates intriguing 2D and 3D objects and many familiar characters inspired by much-loved children’s books. The woollen textiles in FIBRE Felted are playful and experimental, the only tools required to create them are the artist’s hands. Woollen work will also biodegrade completely, returning to the earth, it is truly a sustainable art form. Come and see (and touch!) this vibrant artwork, and be astonished by the versatility of wool.
About the Artist
Tamzen Lundy is a textile professional of 20+ years’ experience. She has worked on all sides of retail, design and manufacturing in the fast fashion world. Over time Tamzen learnt that this was not a sustainable model, neither good for the people or the planet. She turned her back on these fast processes to return to her first love, textiles and making art a little more slowly. She works from her home in Maynooth, surrounded by fibre, up to her elbows in soap lather, dancing to the radio, chatting with the kids and whooshing the cat off the table!
