Crafting for England

Needle Felt

Delightful little bird characters made with humour and a great deal of patience

Loren Thorne

Needle Felt Pictures

Loren somehow seems to breathe light and space into her felt landscapes, all nicely framed in light oak finished frames.  Originally from Wales, sheep, hills and rural cottages still sneak into her work, though she is now resident on the IW.  Lauren is also a talented Jazz singer, hence the name 'the Singing Crafter'.

Kate Toms

Structural Textiles

These felt hounds are designed to delight  grown ups - definitely  not cuddly toys for children.  We have recently recieved 4 gorgeous new needle felt dogs from Kate Toms.  She has added a wooden plinth for each dog to stand on and a collar inscribed 'good dog'.  Seen here is Rex, still in the workshop awaiting his collar and plinth.  Needle felting is a very labour intensive craft and if you wish to commission a piece you will need to allow a three month lead time for delivery.
