Horse Hair Jewellery and Small Sculpture with Katrina Virgona at Eastern Hills Senior School

Eastern Hills Year 9 students worked with textiles artist Katrina Virgona to learn the art of feltmaking with the unusual addition of horse hair. Over three weeks the students created neckpieces, small sculptures and brooches incorporating stitch and hanks of horse hair to explore their connection with horses. Their work drew on notions of whimsical, playful talismanic weaponry and adornment.
