Pippa Woodhams textile artist Meet and Greet

Come along and meet our ‘Artist of the Month’ Pippa Woodhams for an informal discussion about her beautiful and inspiring felt sculptures and geometric pieces on display at Leeds Church Institute on Wednesday 19th April 2023 1pm – 2pm

Pippa has a long association with Leeds Church Institute, with whom she ran a series of “Wild City Retreats”, bringing nature into the heart of the city, at Meanwood Valley Urban Farm.

She newly discovered creativity in her fifties, in a mid-life shift to an Art & Design degree at Bradford College, and went on to practice art psychotherapy in acute mental health settings.

Pippa’s geometric shapes, both flat and three dimensional, are fun explorations of colour, texture and space, slowly built up in multiple layers, which aim to stimulate close observation and imagination.

“The felting process takes time, it is contemplative, encourages metaphorical meanings, and to me is deeply connected to my understanding of spirituality.”
