Valérie Wartelle: Closer Still

Mon – Sun, 10am – 5pm

The Biscuit Factory

Valérie Wartelle is a contemporary fine artist working with fibres and textiles. Taking the rural environment as her inspiration, she explores long-term interests of texture, colour, layering and process to create contemplative and ethereal wall hung artworks.

Valérie’s primary practice is wet felting; a traditional craft technique using wool tops, hot water, soapsuds and friction to interlock the fibres together. The compositions are built in layers in which cloth is embedded, prints disguised, and threads unravelled as a painter with her brush.
