STOP PRESS: Click here for Woolfest Online 2020
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. I’m currently (June 2020) setting up a small shop on my Facebook page. (facebook.com/feltbybridget) I don’t know what is happening about Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show, or the Forum Unik Design events in November and December- I’ll keep you posted.
I also exhibit at local galleries, and teach feltmaking workshops. I am a member of the International Feltmakers Association.
