About Gladys Paulus

I am a self taught felt maker with a background in Fine Art painting. I was born and raised in the Netherlands, but I have been based in the UK since 1995. When I am not making felt I am with my two children or out on my allotment experimenting with dye plants.

The driving force behind my work is a love of the natural world and the alchemy of the ancient process of feltmaking. I am fascinated by wool in particular and natural fibres in general and sometimes incorporate the latter in my felt work.

I currently live and work in Somerset, where I run a regular workshop programme…
