FIBRE ARTIST

About Me

I’m Rosie.

I’m located in Leicester and loving life.

I’m a fibre artist who specialises in needle felting.

I’m also a webdesigner which comes in handy for my online shop.

I teach needle felting Workshops in the Leicestershire area and I am also in the process of making online needle felting videos for those looking to learn from the comfort of their home. I love teaching absolute beginners the simplest techniques I’ve learned and adapted over the years, so they can create beautiful birds and animals.

A previous passion was fabric doll-making, I loved hand-stitching little dolls and their clothing. It seemed natural to progress into needle felting which achieves a more defined 3D shape without the use of patterns and stitching. I love needle felting and also make anthropomorphic creatures (ascribing human characteristics to nonhuman things). These pieces take me on a magical journey where the only limitation is my imagination. My hope is to be continually learning and teaching this amazing art form.

 

Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas

So how did it all begin?
As a frequent Instagrammer I came across an ad for crafters to apply for the upcoming Christmas season of Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas. I’m not sure why but I just impulsively decided to go for it. I had nothing to lose surely?
Then a few weeks later… surprisingly, I got a call from the lovely folks at Raise The Roof Productions, and their finally decision was to invite me to be part of their show…
