|Felt piece made at Bankfield Museum 1997|
I began my textiles journey when I moved to Yorkshire in 1996, initially in a morning adult education (remember the joys of those opportunities) then on a City & Guilds programme, I kept seeing pieces of felt and being eager to learn the process. I was fortunate to get a place on a weekend course at Bankfield Museum with renowned feltmaker Heather Belcher. A serendipitous time, June Hill was the curator at Bankfield at the time creating an innovative education programme and inspiring exhibitions. a great beginning on a new path.
