Here at EyeFeltForYou Fiber Art Crafts we have been very fortunate to offer you felting kits designed by fiber artist Caroline Burton. These kits give you a brilliant introduction to wet felting and within an hour and half you will have created your own piece of felt with your own poppy field front and center..
Caroline works from her rural studio in Franklin, Auckland. She creates abstract fibre artworks, often with 3-dimensional elements. Wisps of wool and silk fibre are used as painterly brush strokes.
Her work is often informed by her background in engineering - evidence of this previous life can be seen in some of the chosen subject matter as she explores landscapes and geological forms of New Zealand. Through diligent practise, she has taken a medium that is traditionally crafted and developed her artistic voice.
An award winning artist, Caroline's work is exhibited and held in private collections internationally and locally.
Caroline is passionate about encouraging others to explore their own creative expression and this has led her to develop a range of stand-alone felting kits and Virtual Studio Workshops. She also gives workshops in person throughout New Zealand.
