I’m proud to be part of ‘Yarndale@Home’ this weekend.
Tune in for ‘A peek into Bridget’s world of felt hat making’ at 1 pm on Saturday 26th Sept
I’m also proud to announce that I have a fully stocked online shop on Folksy. Hurrah!!
I am a professional feltmaker specialising in handmade felt hats, scarves and accessories. Using traditional wet felting techniques, my designs are individually handmade from high quality merino wool to create a unique product.
Felt is my passion, my obsession!
I am still amazed by the almost magical transformation from raw unspun wool to a fabulously versatile textile. I love the texture, I love its sculptural properties, I love the way that colours can be combined and overlain – almost like watercolours. I never fail to be stunned by the results.
Where to find me 2020: Although Woolfest 2020 and Yarndale 2020 have been cancelled, I will be participating in their respective online events. You can find videos I made for Woolfest on my Facebook page (facebook.com/FeltByBridget/), where I chat about my designs, try on hats and show you my work.
Unfortunately Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show has also been cancelled – I don’t know if they are planning anything online.
I am a member of the International Feltmakers Association.
