Little Bird

Lost in a world of colour and wool, Little Bird makes beautiful needlefelted landscapes of Monmouthshire and the surrounding areas.

Feltmaking is one of the oldest crafts known to man and anyone who has ever washed a favourite woolly in a hot wash will know a little about the felting process.

Wool fibres have scales along their length which enables them to bind with adjoining fibres to form a firm, yet soft fabric. Little Bird manipulates this quality to build up a picture by layering washed, dyed and carded wool fibres on a blank canvas before binding the fibres with a very sharp barbed needle.
The resulting picture has an almost three dimensional quality which translates into a visual representation of the stunning local landscape.

Little Bird uses native and welsh wools which have been washed, carded and dyed to produce a range of stunning colours. Once the needlefelting has been completed, details are added using machine or hand embroidery.

A Little Bird landscape makes a special gift and she is happy to take commissions. What is your favourite place?
