We are  delighted to be share these textile sculptures with our visitors. They have been created by Virginija Kuosaitė-Knowles, the founder and director of the Young Masters Art School.  Virginija is originally from Zarasai; and now lives with her family in the Bradford District.  Textile sculpture is a new field for Virginija, inspired by the work of Mr Finch and she has created a beautiful group of colorful heroes from various inhabitants of the forest.

Virginija looks for materials for her figures in many places – much of it repurposed, creates the layout, and sews and knits her heroes herself. You can see well-known animals that live in the forest zone of Europe: bear, wolf, fox, badger, hedgehog and others. Virginijia’s artistic skills give them a unique look and turn them into fairy tale characters.
