AAW - 2nd Open Studios Tour

September 2021:

Artists Around Wetherby Open studios - My second one.


This is my second Open Studio. Still nervous but at least I know what I'm doing this time and I feel a bit more organised. Love, love, love this gazebo. What a great investment. We put it up last year and it has stayed put, even through the Winter. The fairy lights were installed for a special family birthday and they're a great addition.

Really busy weekends. September again - due to Covid. More people this year and I felt so much more comfortable, speaking with everyone about my work. I had chosen 'Felted Yarns' as my company name and it still seems apt. The name comes from felting, which is my main art / craft passion. Yarns is one of those lovely old words to describe a long story that may or may not have completely true elements. It's second meaning is the threads or fibre strands that are spun together to create beautiful textures in my work. 

The background of my pictures / fabrics is created using the ancient art of wet felting. Laying Merino wool fibres in layers, then wetting with warm, soapy water. Lots of agitation, felts the fibres together to create a soft but strong fabric. I add details using threads, yarns, hand and machine stitching techniques. There's a wonderous freedom to 'painting' with fibres, that I cannot get with paint....yet!

Collingham and Harewood Inspiration

Collingham and Harewood Inspiration. I get plenty of inspiration from the landscapes on my doorstep. I love to walk through the fields and woods near my home in Collingham. Although my photographs are amateur, I take lots because they inspire each piece of work.
