Christina Kent, a talented local craftswoman, will be demonstrating her skills at the Kilmore Art Expo on Saturday 9th April at 12.30pm to 2.30pm.

Her garments are exquisitely handcrafted and unique in design. Her demonstration, showing interested visitors the basics and answering question regarding felting, is one not to be missed.

Christina started to explore felting eight years ago after seeing a wedding dress at an exhibition. She was fascinated with the properties of wool and its connection to other natural fibres and wanted to know more. After completing a felting class at a fibre forum at Halls Gap, Christina was hooked, and what followed was membership in the Victorian Felters and the International Felters with her work being exhibited with the Victorian Felters at their bi-annual exhibition. Christina loves exploring and experimenting with different types of wool and natural fibres and fabrics, and participates in regular workshops with international and Australian felters. Keen to improve and hone her technique she spent a week in New Zealand with a Southern Hemisphere Convergence. She is currently developing her own technique that will be uniquely hers and her long term goal is to hold an exhibition of her own collection.

A number of garments made by Christina will be on display at the Kilmore Art Expo, so don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to meet and speak with this talented lady.
