About Frou Frou Felt

Frou Frou Felt

Decoratively Functional Handmade Felt

Hello

Many thanks for visiting my space on Folksy. Originally, I trained as a potter at Camberwell College of Art in London. After completing my degree course, I started to make papiermache (as I did not have a kiln), decorating pieces with stitch and print.

When I moved to North Wales, I enrolled on a textile course and was shown how to make felt. I love the physicality of felt. Like ceramics, you are taking a relatively raw material (I don't actually process the fleece, however) and transforming it - wool is so versatile.

I love surface decoration, so use hand embroidery, prefelts, weave, crochet, knit to embellish items, Recently, I have been working on a larger scale and have produced wall hangings and lengths of fabric.

My work is made in a small room in my house. Larger scale work has to be made outside.
