Please note that there is a change of venue for the felting workshop with Tacha Reed on March 28, 2020. Due to a scheduling difficulty with the South End Baptist Church we have needed to move this workshop to the Findley Centre at 26 Elliott Street, Dartmouth.

The following is information found on Tacha Reed’s website “Woodland Wool.”

BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 2003.

Upon graduation I began teaching art to elementary students, and for nearly two decades I have continued to work as a freelance photographer and designer, collaborating with many musicians, entrepreneurs and not-for-profit organizations.

Since relocating to the tiny community of Ellershouse over a decade ago, my artistic practice has grown to include the creation of tactile fine artworks and products that make use of natural and recycled materials. These days I primarily create using wool from local British milking sheep raised in Avondale, which I carefully hand dye prior to transforming the fibre into vibrant felted wall hangings and functional items like hats and purses. When I’m not working or creating I continue to pass along my skills and knowledge by leading fibre art workshops and demonstrations, and by actively volunteering with groups like the Avon River Arts Society and the Full Circle Festival, organizing cultural events and activities.

Tacha is a gifted fibre artist who is not only involved in her community, but also an outspoken activist voicing her concerns about the ecological state of the Avon River.

The cost of the workshop is $35.00 for DVAS members and $50.00 for non-members. Tacha will come to the workshop bringing all the supplies for each participant to complete a felted piece of artwork, and requests that participants pay $20.00 to cover the cost of supplies.

This is an exciting way to expand our artistic abilities and to experience working with fibres in order to create a unique piece of art.

Come out and have a day of fun.
