Geraldine Kelly is looking forward to hosting a very different type of residency this August – she and her friends will be taking a fleece and making wool on a spinning wheel with workshops and exhibitions featuring textiles, tapestries and weaving skills. 

This artist’s residency is about wool – processing a whole sheep’s fleece. The journey of transforming a raw fleece through to usable yarn involves many different steps, many decisions and lots of skills, much specialised equipment, and a whole other vocabulary.

A special creative residency in Wandsworth at Sprout Gallery, 74 Moyser Road SW16 6SQ.
