My article about Cuthbert's cloak has been published!

Cuthbert's relics will now go on exhibition in September 2017, so the cloak and other commissioned artworks will be exhibited soon after this.

My biggest felt commission to date was completed at the end of last year. The felt cloak was designed to be worn for story telling and reflects the life and legacy of an important local figure. It is richly decorated with imagery from the wildlife of Lindisfarne, images from the Lindisfarne Gospels and also from the silks that were placed in the coffin after his death.

Before it was delivered I was able to have some photographs taken of me wearing it at and above Cuthbert's Cave.

It will be exhibited alongside Cuthbert's treasures when they are exhibited later this year in the newly developed areas of Durham Cathedral.

Nuno Felted Scarves Workshop

I ran my first feltmaking workshops of the year at The Cheviot Centre in Wooler. The nuno felted scarves were very popular. We had great fun and what a stunning range of creations!

If you would be interested in having a go, let me know and I will organise another.

New workshop space

The building of my new workshop is progressing well. The floor is down, and all the plasterboard is on the wall. The first fix electrics are done, so the next step, is the plastering. It's an amazing space. When its all finished I will be delivering a range of workshops here.
