POPPIES 1Sea of Felt
£27.00 1 in stock
Hello I am a felt artist based in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. Using both wet & needle felting techniques I create many items with felt.
I first learnt the amazing craft of feltmaking on an afternoon workshop, and I have been “felting” ever since. In 2015 I gained a City & Guilds in felt making, and I am a member of the International Feltmakers Association.
Working from my small studio room at home, I fit my art in around other work & family commitments.
Felt is so versatile, so forgiving, so reusable, and I love the endless possibilities of this ancient craft. Modern & contemporary uses; practical as well as amazing pieces of art, feltmaking brings enrichment & enjoyment in so many ways.
I’m inspired mainly by the natural world; walks in the countryside, beautiful gardens and especially by the sea and shoreline. The ever changing weather & seasons, and the effect these have on nature, is a constant source of inspiration. It is always a challenge trying to interpret the natural world in my artwork, a challenge which brings enjoyment and on occasions frustration!
I sell my work at local craft fayres, been part of exhibitions both locally & in Somerset, and had work for sale in cafes in Leigh-on-Sea and Stow-on-the-Wold. I am also a member of the Leigh Art Trail.
Thank you for visiting my shop and I hope you enjoy my work.
