Wool wonders on display Crafty spinners: Debbie Thackray and Beth Johnston in the workroom at the Kapiti Arts and Crafts Society. By MARGARET IRVINE Felt sculptures: Edna Stuart's imaginative use of felt. Trees in Raumati's Matai Rd Reserve will sport knitted coats for the upcoming Wonders with Wool exhi- bition. The colourful exhibition, opening on Wednesday, will display the work of the Kapiti Arts and Crafts Society's spinners, weavers, felters and knitters group which has members in a wide range of ages and levels of ability. Some of the work has been shown in national exhibitions of knitting and felting. Along with the practical items on display there will be the frivolous,'' said gallery spokeswoman Jan Smith. Edna Stuart is displaying some of her amazing felt sculptures along with other members' imaginative work.'' Felter Pauline Sutherland said working with wool was fascinating -- It's one of the earliest fibres known. The Romans used it.'' Carole Lacoste, a potter and a felter said: Since I started treating my wool like clay I've been doing much better.'' Among the many uses of the craft is recycling old woollen garments into new felted articles and there will be an example of this at the exhi- bition. The crafters also make extensive use of silk in their felting. Ms Lacoste said the tech- nique of creating felt was relaxing and therapeutic and people could see a demon- stration in the Kapiti Arts and Crafts workshop on Saturday, May 21. The society is also holding three weeks of displays in the Gillian and Roderick Deane Artspace at Paraparaumu LIbrary. Wednesdays to Sundays, 10am till 4pm until June 19, Kapiti Gallery, Matai Rd, Raumati.
