Crafty Creative Sisters
As artists, writers and crafters we love to make people smile with our alternative ideas and thoughts. After many years of working separately in the art and craft industry, we have combined our talents to bring you the Woolly Felters. We needle felt from our wool filled studio at Felty Towers, in Kent where we enjoy our whimsical world. We have been working as the Woolly Felters for over six years now during which time we have written three books, run workshops and enjoyed creating a magical world of storytelling with our woolly creatures.
A bit about me - Roz
From an early age I have always loved storytelling, drawing, painting and all crafts. Following time spent in Paris, where I learnt French at L’Alliance Francaise, I started my career in television and in the media before joining Search Press. While there - before retiring, I enjoyed many years as Editorial Director commissioning practical art and craft books for international markets. I am a published poet, loving myths and legends, lyrical narratives and eco odes, and I have also written our book for children and crafty needle felters: 'What the Mouse Mates Made: Felty Towers'.
'Woolly' because that's just what we are - and we are proud of it! In our 'oh so serious' world there is plenty of room for laughs (and some needle felting of course!)
Our Royalness Majestic, King Charles, and our wee Mouse Mates are the fantastic team who support everything we do in Felty Towers. Especially, (a little mouse has just whispered to us) - if there is cheese for supper!
A bit about me - Judy
I am a designer and love coming up with new ideas for our woolly characters. I have written numerous books and magazine articles on practical crafts. I attended Cardiff, and then Maidstone College of Art where I studied graphic design before starting work as a designer at the BBC. Over the years I have worked as a lettering artist, illustrator and craft designer and demonstrator. I have appeared on DVD’s and television and love teaching in our fun workshops.
Where would we be without our little helpers. Making cheese tea, looking after the accounts, keeping an eye on stock levels - our wee mice are at the heart of everything we do in Felty Towers AND they allow us fun time to make our crazy 'Homespun movies'
