Felted hand made purple br...Phinefibre
Hi, Welcome to my small online shop. I am a fibre and mixed media artist/designer maker. All of my artworks and jewellery are handmade originals
Please enquire for postage rates for Europe, USA and rest of world. If tracked posting is required please contact me for prices.
I create fibre felted jewellery, large and small wall hangings, sculptural pieces and masks using my vast and colourful collection of wool, plant fibres and up-cycled materials. Sometimes incorporating stitch into the textural surface.
I especially enjoy making brooches which are like mini wearable paintings.
I started out as a designer then morphed into a community artist/educator, running workshops for many diverse projects. Murals, mosaics, big felted wall hangings, masks, willow lanterns and giant textile creations for celebration parades.
Recently I moved into a studio in a beautiful converted chapel in Yorkshire. Where I also run felt-making and needle felting workshops.
Some of my artwork has been inspired by a very memorable Artists’ residency on the Shetland Isles - a truly amazing, captivating experience. Staying in a wind swept lighthouse, high on the cliffs surrounded by wild seas with the resonating echoes of sea birds and puffins - right up on the Southern tip of the Isles.
I love vibrant, lively colour combinations and abstracted irregular forms.
