Feltwilde is the work of fibre artist Gillian Brooks, who creates contemporary handmade felt designs and is "mad keen" on textiles.
She attended her first felt-making workshop in 1994 and was immediately struck by wools extraordinary unique properties and handmade felts amazing versatility.
"Handmade felt is a strange and unique textile. Moisture, heat and friction applied to wool fibres over time creates a versatile and utilitarian fabric which can be adapted to many applications. I am continually surprised, delighted and/or challenged by the seemingly unlimited possibilities of this amazing medium, that a lifetime doesn't feel long enough. By continuing to immerse myself in my craft, make unique works, and teach, I wish to introduce other's to the remarkable and sustainable properties of wool and the ancient craft, with a modern twist, of felt-making.
