Katrin is an accomplished painter and feltmaker from Kilmacolm, Scotland, who's interest in wool began with a visit to Estonia, the country where her parents were born.
Often Katrin begins with a painting and then interprets it in wool using combinations of wet and needle felting. On a smaller scale she also creates brooches in wool in a series of her own designs, a selection of which are currently on display at the Howden Park Arts Centre in Livingston until April.
We're also delighted to have a selection of Katrin's sheep design cards available to buy in our new coffee shop!
"I love the tactile,comforting quality of wool and the thought of working in a medium which has remained unchanged for thousands of years. After all this time it amazes me that there is still scope for creating unique products from this age old material."
