Meet the maker Melanie Green

I am a needle felter and textile artist from Scarborough. I make handmade needle felted birds, wedding cake toppers and prints in my seaside studio on the West Pier in Scarborough.

I studied textile design at Loughborough University and Graduate 2001. I was introduced to feltmaking by a friend and set up my business feltmeupdesigns in 2007 selling handbags and purses.

I began making felt animals at the beginning of 2008 and they just took over my house!
