Rebekah Staples - Felting

Rebekah Staples

I am a qualified textile artist specialising in felt, stitch and hand spun wool, producing textiles to a high standard.

I create unique, original handcrafted items. I like to explore and experiment using different fibres, threads and techniques before deciding on the final piece. I use the wet felting technique in my pieces but sometimes enhance with needle felt..I also hand spin various fibres to create my own interesting threads to use within the stitched detail.
My current range of work FELTSCAPES, are a series of creative felt landscapes enriched with handstitched detail using a variety of threads and wool.
Each piece is presented in a pine frame.
I accompany my work with related items such as cards and prints.

My inspiration comes from the natural world that I surround myself in, using different fibres and memories of places I have visited.

I am a member of the IFA (International Feltmaker Guild) and the WSD (Weavers, Spinners and Dyers Guild) and I use these to enhance my skills and knowledge, and encourage my creativity.
