    TUTOR: Catherine O'Leary lives in Melbourne. She has worked with felt for more than 20 years and exhibited and taught extensively in Australia and overseas. Catherine has been profiled in several magazines and her work is featured in various books, including her own - "From Felt to Fabric". Catherine introduces her distinctive painterly approach to Nuno felting with trademark techniques that make the craft easier to master, more creative and more personal. Her exciting innovation, Nuno prefelts, integrate printed fabric into the process as design elements whilst exploring the principals of art and composition.
