Hi Everybody!

Hi Everybody, Please bear with me, this is my very first blog!
Inspired by nature and the surrounding rural landscape I create simple bowls, wallhangings and wearable items using a variety of felting techniques. Materials used include fibres from sheep, goats, rabbits, plants and found objects. Items may also include silk, muslin, jute or skrim and be decorated with manmade recycled and found items such as buttons.

On Sunday 20th April I returned from a fantastic residential weekend at Avondale House, Rathdrum, Co. Wicklow with Feltmakers Ireland! This was a wonderful opportunity to interact and learn from experienced textile artists in a beautiful and relaxed atmosphere. Altogether nine members attended and created an amazing variety of finished pieces and samples using the most ancient and up to date techniques, wet and dry felting, embroidery, embellishing and working with water soluble fabrics.

  1. Hi Cathy,

    Thanks a million for all your help and support. Have been working on a new series of lightweight scarves and jewellery for the summer, will be photographing them over the next few days and will post them on the blog.

    Cheers,

    Nicola
