Wet Felting Work shops

by the Felting Mad Hatter

Claire Lloyd (felting madhatter) lives in Pembrokeshire and since 2010 has specialised in felted accessories and garments. I work with a host of different wools from merino to Norwegian and combines silk or cotton with merino wool in order to create hand finished unique designs in wearable pieces of art and home accessories.
The technique I use is called feltmaking and involves agitating wool under hot and moist conditions with the help of of soap to turn it into a durable, but soft and pliable fabric. Many different techniques are used including nuno and resist felting resulting in many of the items being one of a kind and unique. A lot of my inspiration comes form nature and living in Wales. In the felting madhatter website you will find a variety of beautiful and unique felt accessories, jewellery, handbags, gloves, scarves and hats.

In addition to creating unique felt products I also delivers courses in felting techniques including, basic flat felting,  resist felting and Nuno felting.
