Felt Isle

Textiles

Hello, my name is Cathie Palmer and I am a felt artist, I am inspired by the beauty that surrounds me here on the Isle of Bute. 

I only discovered the ancient art of felt making a few years ago, wool is a natural medium with amazing properties which when mixed with soapy water and lots of elbow grease can be turned into many beautiful things such as bowls, scarves, brooches and felt paintings. Many of which I embellish with hand or machine embroidery and beads for added texture.
