Embracing Wool is a collaboration of professional textile artists who want to share their enthusiasm for their craft. Based in Yorkshire and adjacent counties, our artists primarily work with and promote the use of wool as a medium for their work. A 'not for profit' organisation.
Individual members provide exhibitions, demonstrations and workshops to show the versatility of wool. Our aim is to encourage people to participate in learning new techniques and in turn push the boundaries of this diverse and exciting medium.
Wool is a natural and versatile resource. Its uses vary from traditional wool crafts, such as spinning, weaving and wet felting.. To its use as a medium in contemporary fine art textiles and couture.
