One of Castlemaine’s newest imports, talented artist, teacher and author Catherine O’Leary has recently launched her latest book on the art of feltmaking Felt Forward – New Technologies in Feltmaking.
The former Melbourne artist’s favoured medium is a niche but worldwide ancient art form.
Catherine has been pursuing a passion for feltmaking for more than 30 years and is now at the forefront of developments in the art internationally.
Catherine has previously published a title on the subject From Felt to Fabric through publisher Lark Books in the USA in 2011.
This led to opportunities to teach and to present at schools, workshops and events all over the world including throughout Australia and the USA, England, Wales, Ireland, The Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand and South Korea.
During that time she has been continuing to hone and master her craft and is excited to be able to share all she has discovered in her self published new title Felt Forward. See the Mail for the full story. Out Now.
