Monica Sgrò - artist website
Her artistic research is based on an educational and relational approach, and on collaborative workshops and projects, with the use of ancient techniques and natural materials. For many years, the use of wool and the process of manual felting have allowed a combination between the material fabric and the social fabric. The choice of working only with this allows developing and studying artistic and educational courses with professors and students and therefore to enhance the material in its role as a teaching tool. The projects mainly take place in public locations, in particular in those places where wool, which used to be a resource and a hallmark, is not known as it was before, and that caused handicraft, economy, and culture of the field to be neglected.
