Join artist and creative tutor, Abigail Lagden, to discover the delights of fabric sculpting. This rather fun and messy craft involves working with fabrics and a fabric hardener to create pieces which are full of intriguing texture and depth. Abigail has a fascination of all things magical and mythical and this certainly creeps out in most of her pieces, bringing a sense of fantasy and fun which also spills into her workshops.
