Felt Artist

As a Felt Artist and Designer Maker, Julia has produced and using her own Wensleydale Fibre from animal to the end result.

Her meditative approach and commitment to Slow Art reflects an intimate connection with nature brought out in semi abstract form.   

This involvement with many different hand skills at all stages of creativity invites its own process of transformation in the observer and wearer through the uniquely lustrous, and often plant dyed fibre.

This involvement with many different hand skills at all stages of creativity invites its own process of transformation in the observer and wearer through the uniquely lustrous, and often plant-dyed fibre.

Many years of experimentation and research into the properties of Wensleydale Longwool have followed,  together with searching out different tools and techniques.   Colour palettes of  handdyed fibre with plants known for their substantive colour fastness are sometimes prepared months ahead of unknown need. 

Julia’s work is a continual practice, bringing creative impulse and process together through a seamless development of ideas into Felt Art for interiors private or public.
