About

Vintage Loving Feltmaker!

I love making things with my hands. Initially, I trained as a potter but discovered felt making on an informal textile course. It offered me all the things that I found most exciting in ceramics, direct physical manipulation (including rolling, throwing – but no dirty finger nails), surface pattern, 3d design, and texture. Felt can be anything you want it to be – it does not work so well as a material for functional kitchen objects, though, unlike ceramics.

I moved from the city to live close to the sea and mountains. Nearby is a beautiful, hilly, woodland walk that is totally inspiring in its sounds, smells, flora and fauna and an excellent calorie burner. Inspiration comes from anything and everything (from Matisse, tattoos, 50’s fabric prints to ‘precious’ junk from charity shops).

My making journey normally starts with a sprint of elaborate chaos (in my head or a sketchbook) but once I’ve caught my breath, (had a cup of tea, played a little tune) I start to simplify and reduce ideas. I love using bright colours and incorporating various felt making techniques within one piece including embroidery, pre-felts and needle felting.

Mainly, I use dyed merino wool because of the softness of its texture when felted. Currently, I am exploring wool dyeing, using the shibori technique, investigating natural dyes and learning how to spin (without a bike and with my feet placed firmly on the ground!)

Shop policies

Last updated on July 11, 2013
Thanks for shopping and supporting me. I live in Llandudno, North Wales, working from a small home studio. I hope you enjoyed looking at my work. Each item is carefully made, inspired by a variety of sources from vintage tattoos to berries falling on leaves. Generally, a bag will take, at least, over 5 hours to complete. I have a web site: www.froufroufelt.co.uk but I only sell through Etsy.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Other Method
Payment
I live in Wales, UK. So for overseas shipping, I'm only able to accept Paypal payments. Sorry.

Buyers in the UK can also choose to pay using postal order or personal cheque.

Please note that you don't have to have a Paypal account to pay via Payal.
Shipping
For shipping within the UK, I will send all things 1st Class recorded delivery, as soon as I have received payment.

I will ship to the Etsy address.

Overseas orders, over £20, are sent by Royal Mail, International Signed For, which is more expensive than regular Airmail.

Delivery times vary according to item's destination, but outside the UK, items can take up to 4 weeks to arrive.

In all instances, I will notify you of the dispatch date. Each item will be carefully wrapped prior to dispatch.

International customers will be responsible for paying any custom duties liable.
Refunds and Exchanges
I try to describe items as fully as possible, using images and words. Hopefully, you will really like the product you have purchased.

If, however, you feel that I have not accurately described the item, please get in touch via Etsy shop.

I will not be able to refund any return postage costs. If a refund is agreed, you may return an item for refund only within a seven day period after receipt of that item and provided that the item is in new condition.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are not satisfied with the product, please let me know before leaving a neutral or negative feedback. I will gladly work with you to correct the situation.

My items are not suitable for small children.

I would recommend dry cleaning items. Otherwise a very light damp cloth only to remove stains in order to avoid shrinking.
