During this event, you can find Estelle Woolley working on a piece of artwork that draws inspiration from the natural world and makes use of natural materials. You will also have a chance to sit down and have a chat with Estelle and see some her previous work. 

“I have a deep-rooted affinity with the countryside and its resources, in part informed by my family’s long association with farming. The cyclical element of the processes in nature inspires me, as do the insignificant details that we might often pass by. I am interested in ways that we work with or against nature; how we react and intervene, and how nature responds back at a domestic level and beyond. Exploring the oscillation between microcosm and macrocosm, I often question how very small things can imply much larger thoughts or concerns. Through a minimal and poetic use of materials, which are often very fragile, I explore possible narratives and layers of meaning. By subtle manipulation, I hope to renew a sense of curiosity, while always highlighting the beauty inherent in the forms used.” 

Estelle is an Artist, Community worker and Researcher based in Cheshire.
