Meet the Instructor:
Diana Nagorna is an artist and textile designer. She is a graduate of Donetsk State Art College and Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Arts.
“A few years ago I was in the creative search, but not in the abstract, I was in the very concrete search however, like many artists. I was looking for a new material, through which I could express myself fully. And I found it. Now the felting has become for me the main type of work, and in this amazing material I implement a wide variety of designs. Now I work with natural wool and variety pure silk and fibers, in the techniques of wet felting, and nuno felting.”
