I am a feltmaker/artist/craftsperson - I live in Brigg, North Lincolnshire and work from home, with the support of my lovely little family.
In 2004 I started feltmaking after attending a night class run by a local arts group, which prompted me to buy some books & wool & from there I taught myself the basics.
I now run my own home-business, which is in its 9th year... displaying my work locally and at craft fairs/markets/ events/shows and festivals, undertaking commissions, holding taster sessions/talks/ workshops/demonstrations for adults and/or children & also giving craft sessions at kids parties.
I also work in schools & groups, making eco-friendly crafts, such as milk-bottle elephants, eco-owls & greetings cards, using recycled materials plus felting workshops at after school classes or full day sessions.
Love of the sea & long walks on the beach inspired me to make
felt pictures & hangings framed with driftwood which is collected on the banks of the Humber & also up at Robin Hoods Bay, where some of my work has been on sale in the past & I hope may be again.
I also make button & paper jewellery & other recycled items such as Eco-owls & hares,
vinyl record clocks, bowls & cake stands,
which began when I decided to make a necklace from a favourite button and
I went on from there to make a range of earrings, bracelets, necklaces and brooches from old buttons....& from there to use even more recycled stuff, which fits in well at vintage fairs & such..... I also incorporate pieces of old or broken jewellery into my felt flowers and other felt items, to give them a new lease of life.
I love what I do; feltmaking, for me, is the ideal medium to work with and gives so much scope for the imagination. A traditional craft based on very simple, age-old technique which can be used to produce a wide range of original, unique items.
I meet lovely people, all the time, many of whom become good friends & I enjoy travelling to different places.
Life is never dull :)
