Hand felted garments by Barbara Keal to be worn/displayed as sculpture on purpose-built stands. Taking the desire to connect with the natural, animal world as a point of inspiration, the colours and textures of Sussex wool and alpaca fleece become eared or antlered hats and cloaks which evoke a beautiful, wilder, hairier existence.
Following its successful integration into the London Design Festival last year, Origin: The Contemporary Craft Fair will return to Old Spitalfields Market from 22-28 September 2011.
Origin offers a rare opportunity to see and buy a diverse range of high quality, original craft from over 200 makers in one convenient location. Disciplines range from ceramics, furniture, metalwork and glass, to fashion accessories, jewellery and knitwear. Entrance fee is £10.
