Sarah Waters

Sarah is a textile artist who works with felt in a contemporary and unique way embracing British wool at its core. She has a commitment to felt-making that originates from her love of sheep and farming. Felt making was a natural progression from farming and she now has over 20 years experience, teaching and exhibiting in the UK and internationally. Living in the New Forest, Hampshire, her work reflects her desire to connect with nature and the importance of sustainability. Earliest childhood memories are of collecting pieces of wool caught on fences and twisting into long threads. Sheep, wool and farming are in her blood.
