Business name: Filtmaker Irene Thorsrud Eik
I started felting in 2008 and was immediately captured by the amazing qualities of wool. I am driven by a deep fascination and love of this natural material. The complete transformation of fibres in the felting process never ceases to surprise and impress with its endless possibilities - creating soft and light textiles, but also giving solidity to textured, sculptural work. I usually dye materials or finished felt myself to obtain special combinations and color gradings. My felting and workshop program include clothing, accessoires, interior items, vessels and sculptural objects. I am a juried member of Norwegian Feltmakers' Association (Norske Filtmakere) and Norwegian Association for Professional Artisans (Norske Husflidhåndverkere).
