Hi there
It's been a while since I was last in touch...and a lot has happened in that time.
Since the beginning of August, I have been working fulltime as a feltmaker. This is a big step, meaning that I am now in the studio five days a week and working to a strict creative timetable.

I am delighted to have Nicky Orr, of Frugal Cool fame, helping to keep me on track and working tirelessly behind the scenes to promote me as a feltmaker.

Up to now, I have submitted new work to the Micky Oxley Gallery in Craster. Mick has successfully stocked my merino and silk scarves and wall hangings for some time now. His gallery is a delight...making a visit to the pretty seaside village in Northumberland just that much better.

I have also submitted work for a Scottish Feltmakers' exhibition opening in The Towerhouse, Hawick on October 4th. More of that in my next newsletter.
This month, however, sees the opening of a very exciting collaborative exhibition, featuring the award-winning florist, Esther Kuck of The 'Wild' Flower Shop, and myself in a celebration of Autumn called Felt & Flower (see our poster below).
We first started thinking about this exhibition when Esther saw photos of my work online and was fascinated by the alchemy of turning wool into tactile 3D shapes, such as flowers. The beauty of felt is that, just as flowers are used in floristry, wools can be mixed and layered to create warm and vibrant textiles, as well as unusual and dramatic forms.

We also loved the idea of two Portobello artists working together to celebrate the rich colours and textures of Autumn. The 'Wild' Flower Shop at 90 Portobello High Street, is the perfect venue for our work.

To launch the exhibition, we will host two previews on Saturday 20 September from 6 to 8pm and on Sunday 21 September from 3 to 5pm. The exhibition will run until 18 October.

All felt and flower works are available for sale.

Look forward to seeing you there.

All the best

Heather
