WOW Icon

Featured Artist - Caroline Brown

Bath based Caroline's main craft is needle-felting, however she also combines mixed media and embroidery to create her artwork. 

Since I started exploring embroidery at Foundation level I haven't wanted to do anything else. My degree in Textile Design gave me a chance to explore lots of materials, and this is when I discovered needle-felting! I love that I start with soft wool tops and by working and moulding it my quirky animal characters slowly begin to emerge.

Caroline's characterful line drawings of animals have been translated into a collection of textile sculptures and embroideries. She has combined felt with areas ceramics, creating a contrast of textures and mark making, enhanced through drawing and delicate stitch. 


What is your craft? Needle Felting. 

What is your favourite fibre? Norwegian wool tops are lovely for felting. 

What is your favourite breed of sheep? I think the Wensleydale Sheep are the funniest looking and so they're my favourites!?? 

What do you like most about WOW? The amazing variety of natural wool tops - it has all the colours and breeds you could ever need.
