Valerie Evans is a felt maker, tutor and artist.
The world of felt is wonderful and I feel very privileged to be able to design and create with wool. A remarkable and versatile fibre which amongst its many attributes is sustainable, renewable and biodegradable. I have been felting for over ten years and am totally in love with this craft.
Every piece of felt work is unique and felting provides endless possibilities. I am surrounded by vibrant and soft merino British native breeds wool, silks and other lovely natural fibres in my studio, all ready for me to play with and create felt paintings, accessories and wool sculptures, using both wet felting and needle felting techniques. Both techniques are absorbing and relaxing occupations.
Of equal pleasure is teaching this craft to others whether face to face or, as at present, virtually.
