Needle felted sculptures and DIY kits for beginners

Animals inspire me - I draw them, paint them and make little sculptures of them. Needle felting is not hard to learn but, like drawing, the basics are easy and mastery is more difficult. Having taught myself felting the hard way about six years ago lots of people asked to try it out, so I developed a simple kit to help teach them. Then I made and marketed my first DIY kit with clear instructions - now I have ten and will be adding more.

I was born and raised in the far SW of Cornwall, on a farm, and my childhood was full of animals and art, as both my parents were art school graduates. Recently we made a radical move, leaving our cottage near Penzance and moving aboard a sailboat to live full time. Me, husband Dave, Molly (the Jolly Collie) and Billy the Kit, a chocolate brown half Burmese cat all snugged in to 33 ft of ketch. I had to leave my lovely studio behind, but am still able to work from here thanks to renting a storage container for the purpose. It's not luxury but it works!
