I make individually designed hats, bags and jewellery from mainly natural and local raw materials. The felt is hand-rolled using wool from my own sheep and those (and alpacas) reared by other local farmers. I use my own hand-made soap and the local soft water in the making. I introduce silk and other fibres to produce special textures, colours and effects, or I use undyed natural sheep and alpaca colours and fleece textures with stone, leather and horn fastenings. Sometimes beach-combed findings are incorporated, particularly sea-scoured glass and pottery fragments. I avoid plastics and man-made fibres and fabrics. Many of the dyes are my own, produced from natural local vegetation.
Available in Peak District galleries and at designer fairs. Workshops and demonstrations by arrangement.
