Something a bit different

I have been felting little pods these past few days: A temporary departure from headdresses, and a bit of light relief.

The pods are shown suspended in the side window of OWL (a collective of six artists and makers) where my work is permanently on display. If you happen to be in the area, pop in to say hello!

  1. Just seen your work exhibited at The Hub in Sleaford… fantastic! I’ve come home to check out your website! Wanted to come on a course, but I see the ones I am interested in are all full at the moment… will have to try next year! Congratulations on your fantastic work!

    • Thanks Jennie, I haven’t made it to the exhibition myself yet, but just read a very favourable review in the Craft Council’s Craft Magazine. I’m hoping to create some more work for the next leg of the exhibition, time permitting! If you’re interested, I could add your details to my newsletter database – that way you will be among the first to know about future workshops..

  2. Hi,
    Sorry to be missing the exhibition in Sleaford. Do you know where it is going next? Like Jenny I would be interested in a workshop – 3 d, masks but I see you are not doing this in the UK this year.

    • Hi Angela,

      As far as I know the exhibition will be at The Knitting & Stitching Shows, London & Harrogate later this year, and then on to
      Bilston Craft Gallery, Wolverhampton and Platform Gallery and Visitor Information Centre Clitheroe. You should be able to find more information on the exhibition blog http://blacksheepfelt.wordpress.com/

      Regarding UK workshops, would you like me to add your details to my mailing list to keep you informed of any new workshops? In all likelihood I will be running a 3-D or mask making workshop in the UK next year, and you will be among the first to know of it!

  3. Hi, I love your pods. Not many people who are interested in felting in South Africa. I am a novice. Any advice where I can learn how to make pods on the Internet?

    • Hi Helena,

      Try http://www.fionaduthie.com/, she is the only feltmaker that I know of who teaches on-line. Her courses are very popular and suitable for a range of levels, I’m sure you’ll find something to suit you. Failing that, I can highly recommend Uniquely Felt by Christine White, it’s by far the most in-depth book on feltmaking I have come across and is great to use as a basis to experiment from.

      Good luck and happy felting.

  4. Your work is very beautiful. Please add my email address as I would love to keep following your work. I teach students how to needle felt but am also interested in all felting processes.
