Alexander PILIN (RUSSIA) FELTING THE MATRIX ****NOTE**** This workshop is NOT for beginner felters but for those who have already experimented in depth with feltmaking and wish to advance their technical and artistic potential. The tutor distinguishes between textiles of regular interwoven forms, textiles of multiple interwoven forms and textiles of regular interwoven form- Felt TEXtile fits into this category. In devising this 'classification of textile interweavings' to differentiate between Textile and Felt Textile, he concludes that you can make unique textile products at each stage, and even to consider the 'invention of new felt technologies' the focus in this workshop will be on new technological variants, allowing participants to choose which "matrixes" to explore. Both traditional and modern felt making technologies will be examined. ALEXANDER PILIN is a professor of the Udmurt State Univbersity in Central Russia, in the Department of Arts. He has been making and teaching feltmaking for the past 15 years and has exhibited in Russia Europe and USA. Known for his love of fairy stories involving felt as well as the scientific approach, he is also well versed in the artistic and expressive aspects of felt. He is the inventor of Felt Lace which was shown in 1966 for the first time. Current investigations involve him in research on the connections between various felt and textile technologies including the "combined felt textile" After taking a

workshop with Alexander, Inge Evers, well known feltmaker from Holland has commented that "This is an eye opener and an experience that should be available to more feltmakers around the globe" Ken SMITH (AUS) MACHINE EMBROIDERY..Layering, optical colour-mixing and texture. Students will explore a range of methods of achieving these three vital aspects of creating rich and varied machine-embroidered surfaces. This exploration will proceed within the framework of a design exercise based on controlled improvisation and will consider the interpretive as well as the decorative possibilities of machine stitchery and related effects. All skill levels accepted, though some basic experience would be an advantage. KEN SMITH has been exploring the possibilities of freehand machine embroidery for thirty-six years, for fifteen years, full-time (together with silk painting). Hopelessly addicted to both, he continues to make new discoveries and remains excited by the possibilities of his craft. Much to his own surprise, he also became addicted, in late 1996, to character cloth-doll making. He continues to exhibit in "Art to Wear". As the only man, he exhibits an outfit for a Bloke.
