needlefelted gifts, keepsakes, workshops and supplies

Fibre Artist

Rosie Gittens

Rosie has been needlefelting for almost five years. She used to be a doll maker but is now dedicated to learning all she can about needle felting and she also teaches felting workshops in the Leicestershire area.

She teaches needlefelting at Wistow Gallery in rural Leicestershire, and the University of Leicester, Botanic Garden, and she loves it! She loves meeting people that have no experience with the craft and to hear their initial doubts about their abilities to needlefelt. They always surprise themselves with the beautiful pieces they create.

I was thrilled to be invited to be part of the Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas Show. My category was Christmas Tree Decorating, where culture meets Christmas. I met some wonderfully talented people, not to mention Kirstie herself and the team at Raise the Roof Productions. Such an exciting time to be a fibre artist!

Here are some encouraging words from Rosie’s lovely customers!

“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.”

Sharon M

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

Rebecca W

“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.”

Jenny T

“Incredibly talented artist! Thank you so much for such a beautiful creation. Amazingly fast shipping.”
