Mad Hatter Extraordinaire

Innerspiral is a fibre art studio on the Isle of Wight, run by myself, Zara. But everybody calls me Catface.
Established in a bedroom in 2011, I moved into my own tiny little studio-shop in Shanklin at the end of 2019. I create and work with wool fibres using wet felting and needle felting, art yarn spinning, crochet and other fibre art techniques. I dye all my own wools and wash and process a fair bit of locally sourced fleece, mainly for the wonderful curls with which I adorn my work. All my patterns and designs are my own originals, cultivated over years of perfectionism and downright obsession. I am almost entirely self taught, and the techniques I use for all areas of my craft are my own, developed over years of trial and error and success!
I am best known for my colourful hats. Top hats, super tall top hats,trilbies, ‘wanderers’, witches, beanies... felted or crochet art yarn, hats of all shapes, colour and size! I am not restricted to hat blocks and so each hat I create is utterly one of a kind.
As I am an artist I of course refuse to restricted to just one thing so I also create a wealth of other things, some super serious, others quirky, funky and fun! I make wigs, headpieces, corset waistcoats, scarves, and all sorts of other accessories. I am also involved in creating a fibre art jungle.... but that’s another story.
I make to custom order but I balance this with following my creative muse... It took me years to carve out space for this, but it is essential to me. Otherwise. Burnout.... By allowing myself to find time to make the things I am inspired to create, as well as the things others inspire me to make, I truly believe my art has evolved and become what I have always hoped it would, more and more. I always ahve new things to learn, places to grow, new avenues to discover, this way! The Flow Is Everything as an artistic acquaintance said to me recently!
So. Hats are not made quickly, but they are worth the wait with the hours of love and attention I pour into their creation. You receive a one of a kind, bespoke hat created just for you. I call them hats for life. Treated with care, they will be. I also run a hat MOT service!
But yes, every now and then I release my creations of inspiration into the world, in mini collections. Join the mailing list to be in the know when Ready to Ship pieces are released and to receive general updates and inside info into my experiments in techniques! Email me innerspirals [!at] gmail.com.

I run workshops from time to time in felted hat making. To book a place or invite me to run a workshop at your venue or event, please email me.
With Gratitude xXx
