Karen Head's Profile

About

I'm Karen and I live on the south coast of England near Winchester. I have an amazing studio at the Sorting Office, Eastleigh. It's very exciting and I'm a very lucky girl. Pictures are on my Facebook page, Karen Head Textile Artist!

I love mixing colours ....you never know how different colours will blend with each other and what gorgeous surprises are in store! Dyeing the silk and wool is the fun bit. Making a nuno felt scarf is a lot more physical!. I lay out the wool and silk on to fabric, then make it all wet with soapy water. I have to rub and roll and rub and roll and rub and roll until the fibres have worked their way through the fabric. It's hard work!

I love to be able to take simple materials and turn them into something gorgeous!
