Handmade Needle Felted Birds and Prints from the Glamorous North Yorkshire Coast

My name is Melanie Ann Green and I am a needle felter and print maker based in Scarborough on the beautiful North Yorkshire Coast. My birds are made from the comfort of my sofa in Felt Towers. (Where the biscuit tin lives)

I have been making needle felted creations for 10 years and have made thousands of little birds in this time. Needle felting is a magical process which involves sculpting raw, fluffy wool in to solid shapes using only fine barbed needles and a lot of patience. I started making birds when I was living in a damp, cold basement flat and the lady who lived above me fed the birds and the seed pattered down on my porch so I made her a little white dove as a gift and haven't stopped making birds since.

I specialise in Gocco and lino printing, although not so much these days, and draw my inspiration from the same birds that I make in needle felt form. Gocco printing is a wonderful Japanese miniature screen printing method which uses tiny screens which are exposed to old fashioned flash bulbs to burn an image on to them in carbon.

I recently started making penguins, I'm pretty sure they talk to me... I know they eat all the biscuits! Visit me at www.feltmeupdesigns.com to find out more.
