Chrysalis Art to Wear

Rate this item

Unique hand felted designer accessories & home furnishings, inspired by the Welsh countryside & my garden. 'From the chrysalis emerges a beautiful butterfly, from Chrysalis Art to Wear emerges a beautiful piece of wearable art' I am a textile artist working mainly in the medium of felt although I also use machine & hand embroidery in some of my pieces. My Studio is on our small alpaca farm in the middle of the Welsh Hills in Powys and a lot of my inspiration for colours and work come from my wonderful surroundings.

I produce ‘One off’ designer pieces made using wet felting methods. Wool fibre from various breeds of sheep is used, all hand-dyed by small artisan hand-dyers in the UK, together with hand-dyed silk. Alpaca from our own Chrysalis Alpacas herd is also used in some of the work. Colour is an important theme for me, so the colours I choose to work with usually represent the Welsh countryside around me and my lovely garden.
