OUR ARTIST FOR MARCH

OUR ARTIST FOR MARCH

GABRIELLE BOEHM


Gabi-Boehm2.jpg


Gabi is a textile artist specialising in felting and dying. She prefers to work with natural fibres and dies, and loves creating interesting surfaces and textures.

Her passion is to paint, to dye, to print by hand and of course, felting. She creates hats, scarves, stoles and wraps, bags, tunics and whatever takes her fancy in the moment, but a lot depends on the natural materials she is able to find in nature. She loves combining the luxurious feel of silk with wool fibres and creates terrific garments from the resulting fabrics.

Over the years, her house has transformed into a multi-functional workshop. Felting takes place in the kitchen, where she has easy access to water and a large worktop. Screen-printing can be a bit messy, so that’s done outside. Sewing, designing and displaying took up the rest of the house until she opened a gorgeous studio in Anoyira outside Limassol where you may see a large selection of her work.

 

She regularly participates in exhibitions, arts & crafts fairs and markets all around Cyprus. If you like to know where she will be next, check the calendar on her website. All her contact information and directions to her studio can be found on

This information from Wikipedia:

Felt is a textile that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibres together. Felt can be made from natural fibres such as wool or synthetic fibres such as acrylic.

 

Many cultures have legends as to the origins of felt making. Sumerian legend claims that the secret of felt-making was discovered by Urnamman of Lagash. The story of Saint Clement and Saint Christopher relates that while fleeing from persecution, the men packed their sandals with wool to prevent blisters. At the end of their journey, the movement and sweat had turned the wool into felt socks.

 

Felt-making is still practised by nomadic peoples (Altaic people:Mongols;Turkic people) in Central Asia, where rugs, tents and clothing are regularly made. Some of these are traditional items, such as the classic yurt (Gers), while others are designed for the tourist market, such as decorated slippers. In the Western world, felt is widely used as a medium for expression in textile art as well as design, where it has significance as an ecological textile.
