Welcome

Hello and welcome to Fulraw Fibrecrafts. My name is Kerry Thomas and I create felt pictures with fibres such as wool and silk, alpaca and Samoyed, angora rabbit and Mongolian cashmere. My pictures are inspired by natural history  -  landscapes, seascapes and wildlife  -  as well as the subtleties of the changing seasons and the universe that we are part of.

I work from my own photographs, sketches and imagination, and I enjoy the development of each picture through the use of the wools and other fibres with their different textures. The breeds of sheep whose wools I have been using include Blue-faced Leicester, Border Leicester, Gotland, Norfolk, Whitefaced Woodland, Teesdale, Wensleydale, Shetland, Hebridean, Castlemilk Moorit, Ryeland, Corriedale, Falkland and Merino. Other non-animal fibres include bamboo, trilobal, seacell and Angelina.

I embellish some of my pictures with free-motion machine embroidery, and mix techniques of needle-felting with wet-felting, and creating textile pieces using other fabrics and yarns such as silk noile, dupion silk, organza, lawn cotton, cotton scrim, velvet, and so on.

Check out the Events & Exhibitions page for craft days and gallery exhibitions coming up, and if you would like to create a needle-felted picture of your own, take a look at the Workshops page for the next one scheduled.

Thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoy my work!
