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. I purchase fibres from cruelty-free sources, often directly from the animal owners themselves, and that is important to me. 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 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.

 

** Since Covid-19 has prevented many events in the art world, I am for the time being not holding any workshops, or exhibiting beyond the two venues where I sell my work. See the Where to Buy page for those details **

 

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