Amelia is a self-taught felting artist whose journey started over three years ago when she discovered various needle felted decorations at art fairs, and fell in love with the craft. She often creates her beloved felted animals but is always eager to try something new too.
Recently, Amelia has been developing her wet felting technique – a method of combining wool fibres using soapy water. She is keen to make her work more sustainable and has been testing bamboo wools and natural dyes for certain projects, and reusing discarded wool where possible. Amelia is passionate about sharing her craft, particularly the endless possibilities of wool and how forgiving and versatile a textile it is.
