A felt maker for over 20 years, Kirsten has made felt in its many forms, from making traditional floor coverings in Kyrgyzstan villages to gossamer fine Nuno felts for clothing.
Needle felting is a more modern technique using barbed needles to sculpt and compact wool using barbed needles which has its origin in a Victorian method for making non-woven fabrics; preoccupied with needle felting garden birds over the last few years, Kirsten has exhibited them with “Gordano textile artists”, and teaching locally at the spinning wheel shop.
The past few years have seen the birds range from wrens to pigeons and owls, culminating in last year’s life-size Dodo!
