Felting is my passion, my expression, meditation, my relation to the world.
I have been a feltmaker for the past few years, absolutely obsessed with this enchanting world of fibers... I have published a book "Veltinis" ("Felt", 2008, rep. in 2010) about felting technique in Lithuania (it is the first book in Lithuania covering this textile art).
I work with various kinds of wool and other natural fibers. I always prefer organic, sustainable materials for my felted items.
Raw wool that I use in some of my pieces comes only from small scale shepherds who love and care for their sheep.
I also practise dyeing with plants in eco friendly way. I prefer safe plants and don't use any heavy metal mordants…
