I will be demonstrating feltmaking this year so please come along and see how it's done. Workshops coming up include Felt Bags on 28 June and Nuno Felt on 7 July, both at Ardington School, plus Nuno Felted Scarves at New Brewery Arts Centre in Cirencester.
I am a feltmaker based in Oxford. I originally trained in textile design and I’ve been totally immersed in feltmaking since 2011. Wool is such a wonderful natural fibre and I love the feel of working with unspun wool and the way colours and textures can be combined with such freedom to create anything from a diaphanous dress to a robust rug.
My current collection is focussed on sheer lampshades, soft and sumptuous scarves, glasses cases, purses and jewellery.
I teach feltmaking techniques to adults and children in and around the Oxfordshire area and am always happy to run community projects and private workshops. I'm also the Course Coordinator and mentor for the Certificate in Feltmaking Techniques, a programme of study established by the International Feltmakers Association to encourage high quality feltmaking.
