review of a workshop and lecture, 2007|
"Monika Auch gave a two day workshop and lecture in Dublin. The workshop was booked out and there was a very large attendance at her lecture:' High tech textiles from the Lowlands'. The event was generously funded by the Crafts Council of Ireland.
A review of the workshop: Felt made from nails and wire and horse hair..It was an invitation to think critically about felt - a framework to explore the work. The end results were very satisfying, looked amazing and we all benefitted from each other's learning experience. Monika is a very skilled facilitator who successfully challenged us in our approach to feltmaking and in the use of non-traditional materials. I will never look at a metal pot scrubber, an aubergine or a carded fleece in the same way."
