Featured Artist - Lucy Anna Wilkins

Lucy works from a small studio in her house near Leeds, West Yorkshire, creating felt artwork, which she has been doing since 2011.

Having always had creative hobbies in arts and crafts, Lucy studied for a degree in graphic design.

After qualifying and starting my career in graphics I wanted to combine my passion for textiles and working with my hands, and therefore my new hobby and business was born!

Ever since, Lucy has been learning more techniques for working with textiles and making her own wool felt.

Influences for her work come from many sources including nursery rhymes, animals and the beautiful countryside around her. She also undertakes commissions for bespoke and personalised work. Lucy attends events throughout the year and has several stockists around the country as well as selling online.

Q&A 

What do you enjoy most about your craft?: I love creating something useful in no time at all. Felting is so quick and easy.

What is your favourite fibre?: Fleece

What is your favourite breed of sheep?: Merino

What do you like most about the company?: That you process the wool where you are, so exciting seeing the machine running. The atmosphere is great, lovely that it's a family run business. The prices are fantastic and the little extras like the discount card and even the good quality bags will keep me coming back to you.
