Business name: FURZIE
Creating sculptures from wool began as a hobby for Michelle some nine years ago, as Furzie, she has been under-taking commissions and selling her creations worldwide. For the past six years, she has been teaching wool sculpture at venues across the country. Needle-felting is a relatively new art, an off-shoot of industrial felt-making from the nineteenth century. Woollen fibres are bonded together using specially designed barbed needles. This is needle-felting for grown-ups, demonstrating the versatility of sculpting with wool, letting your imagination run riot and the characters and humour develop.
