If you are like me, love a disco but feel the need to continue some sort of textile production on the dance floor, then Wool and Dance could be the party for you.
Sue Russel has felted and travelled for years and is interested in the way nomadic people gather together to make felt for their yurts. Wool and Dance creates large felt carpets by laying wool fibre on the ground in a design, and then with bare feet and a lot of soap flakes, create friction by dancing, which makes the wool fibres lock together to form a solid fabric.
Wool and Dance is presented by Sue Russel and Barley Massey of Fabrications and can be found on the Southbank outside the Royal Festival Hall today Saturday and Sunday. Rain or Shine, you are invited to lend your hands and feet.
