Lois Knight and Liz Marsh work collectively as Posset Felters, using hand crafting techniques to create a wide range of unique gifts including bags, hats, phone cases, brooches, small felted animals, pictures and wall hangings, felted soaps and scarves.
Making use of materials such as Merino and various British wools, Lois and Liz employ both wet felt and needle felting techniques to craft their work. Sometimes silk is combined to make “nuno” felt. They also make "vegetarian" sheepskin rugs, which are made from sheared fleece without the skin!
Recently, the duo has been broadening their range of crafting skills: Liz has been eco printing (i.e. without using any chemical mordants) from natural materials and foliage; whilst Lois has been spinning natural yarns.
ArtPort is delighted to welcome Posset Felters back to the festival for a second year.
