North East felt artist Karen Dale has always loved arts and crafts, and started creating one-off pieces 10 years ago. Each one can take hours of skill and patience, but she says the end results are worth it.
Karen says she just sort of fell into wet felting after trying other crafts. She loves being able to incorporate different fabrics and fibres into it which can give some surprising and beautiful results.
Karen, set up her shop Feltiefings, creating her pictures and animals using the age old wet and needle felting techniques. Her work involves Northumberland landscapes, jewellery and small animals.
She sources most of her wool from UK breeds, mainly from Yorkshire and Cumbria.
