ROSIE GITTENS

 FIBRE ARTIST

Rosie has been needle felting since 2013. She used to be a doll maker but is now dedicated to teaching needle felting workshops in the Leicestershire area.

She teaches private workshops, and at the University of Leicester, Botanic Garden, and Wistow Gallery in rural Leicestershire, and she loves it! She loves meeting people that have no experience with needle felting. They always surprise themselves with the beautiful pieces they create.

Needlefelting

Needle felting is a dry felting technique which employs one or more specially designed needles to manipulate wool fibres. This technique is used by artists and craftspeople to sculpt objects and embellish textiles with wool. Needle felting can be used to create soft sculpture, dolls, figurines, and 2 dimensional wool paintings.

Needle felting starts by placing a cushion or mat on a flat surface. To create a 3D object, a small amount of wool is tightly rolled up into a small bundle. The wool is then stabbed over and over again with the felting needle to lock the fibres together, eventually creating a firm texture that is called felt. Adding more wool and poking it repeatedly into the felt expands the object until it achieves the desired shape.

These are even more adorable in person. I’m thrilled with them and will have to get more! Great for decorations and a great gift!

Grey Wren Studio is First Class. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a very talented artisan. Not only are the items I ordered wonderful – so is the artist who created them.

Beautiful little Robin bought in memory of a loved one. Very realistic looking, even fooled the cat from a distance. Thank you, would recommend.

Rosie was extremely accommodating by adapting my item to suit exactly what I wanted. I opted for a Wren, nest and brown speckled eggs. Nothing was too much trouble. It was beautifully packaged and arrived super fast.
