ABOUT ULLSWATER FELT ART

I started felting after a career in education and a move to Cumbria. I was inspired by Cumbria’s long history of sheep farming. Both Cumbria and sheep are very photogenic, so I am often out with my camera looking for the perfect subject. Needlefelting is an ideal medium to capture textures and colours that characterise the animals that are my subjects. Where possible I use wool from that breed. Initially, I felted portraits of local Cumbrian sheep, but now I do a wide variety of different breeds as well as some goats, Highland cows, alpacas, ponies, goats and hares.

I felt sheep using mostly local wool. I started with Cumbrian breeds and have now branched out to lots of others. I love Ullswater and sheep!

What a joy it was to see my Mom open the package with the beautiful Herdwick. She loves it!! It’s so realistic and expressive. We just need to find a nice frame for him and hang it up in my Mom’s room. She had a brilliant birthday!  Magdalena (Ireland)
