Derbyshire Woodland Festival, Elvaston Castle. 21st and 22nd September 2019, but note I will only be there on Sunday
I specialise in making small woolen items inspired by the natural world, suitable for children and adults. I use both wet felt and needle felt techniques. My aim is to produce beautiful, inspirational items, made with care and love, from carefully selected sustainable materials.
I use as much natural, undyed British wool as possible in my creations - which accounts for approximately 80% of the wool I use. The wood is harvested in a sustainable way, from a small hazel coppice, that I manage myself.
All my items are made with consideration to safety and conform to CE safety standards. The nature of my items makes them unsuitable for children under the age of 3.
I sell my creations through local craft events and Woodland fairs. I also supply my felt mushrooms and trees through The Cosy Catalogue - Outdoor and Early Collection (www.cosydirect.com). Please feel free to contact me directly if you are interested in purchasing any items.
I also run felt making workshops. Special rates are available to school, community groups and the voluntary sector. I run drop in workshops at festivals and events. I also take private bookings, and you can find more information in the attached pdf document:
