Business name: Felt by Reena
My work with textiles grows out from my life - feelings towards my surroundings, seasons, people, children, the whole world around me.. We all sense the beauty of life in different ways and I am happy that I can do that through my work with textiles. While studying in art college, I came familiar with traditional techniques like weaving, machine knitting, silk painting, felting, tapestry weaving etc. Over the last years I have specialized in felting and free hand embroidery. More I felt, more I fall in love with it. And more I want to discover, experiment and learn about it. I love working with different felting techniques as felt can be so versatile ranging from the finest silk scarves to bulky fabrics. I love experimenting with materials and fiber, I love surface design and textures. Over the years I have also been teaching a range of different workshops and courses - mainly in different techniques of felting but also in other art & craft areas. As I am passionate about the materials and fiber used in my work, I have my own flock of finewool sheep. I live and work in Estonia, where I am surrounded by lots of forests, lakes and wildlife. I find a lot of inspiration from my peaceful countryside surroundings while I work in my home barn studio. My work contains fiber art wall hangings, wearable art, accessories and range of home decor products. I have been selling my art work through my Etsy shop to all over the world.
