ROSE FELT INSPIRED | FIBRE ARTIST
Portishead artist Rose Lafferty (Rose Felt Inspired) creates beautiful felted pictures and wall-hangings from natural materials such as wools, silks and other fibres using needle-felting and wet-felting techniques.
She delights in exploring and experimenting with the qualities of different textures and wools. She uses Merino wool, home dyed rare breed fleece, silks and a variety of other wools and fibres in the construction. She also buys rare breed sheep fleeces which she then prepares and dyes herself.
Her work is inspired by a variety of natural world subjects including seascapes, landscapes, flowers, animals and birds, and especially the rolling waves of the ever changing sea.
