Felt

Whilst studying at university I fell in love with the technique of wet felting; I was in awe of being able to make my own fabric in this ancient way. Experimenting with the process I found ways to manipulate my felt to create shapes, textures and patterns that pleased me. I enjoyed incorporating my felt into wood and the combination led to the aesthetic I wanted to achieve.

I was then introduced to needle (dry) felting, where the fleece is bound together by stabbing it repeatedly with a barbed needle. This led to my progression into making 3D felted shapes as the body of my works and incorporating other media as highlights.
