The Woodland Boudoir


Inspired by a stay in Yorkshire amongst joyful, whole-hearted, lusty older women telling tales of their lives, by fairy tales and my fellow artists skills.

In fairy tales the woods stand for female sexuality, a place for young girls to get lost in but inhabited by mature women in tune with nature and themselves. Conceptualized, designed and curated by the multi-talented, creative, Yulia Badian – SILKFELT, the boudoir combines the talents of 8 inspirational female artists in a celebration of mature female sexuality.
Ancient techniques like Shibori, willow weaving, felting and embroidery are used in new and exciting ways to produce meticulously and lovingly hand crafted pieces.
