Wet felting, hand embroidery
Experimental wet felting with hand embroidery. I use sheep and alpaca fleeces, silk fibres, leather and fine Merino yarn in my work.

    I have recently returned to textiles work after many years and I am enjoying making my own felt using wet felting techniques. Felt provides an interesting and satisfying base for hand stitching, enabling me to add a level of detail once I have completed a piece of felt. My work is experimental at this stage and I am working in 2D and 3D, using the Fens landscape for inspiration.
