I have been making felt for about 8 years and have found it to be a joyous creative process that is also meditative for the felt maker. I believe that making is an essential part of the human psyche and that to be creative is to be fully human. There is great pleasure in weaving my life learning as an educationalist, therapist and scientist into this rich kinaesthetic and visual medium. There is some vulnerability here too – in putting something so personal on a wall for others to view. That, though, is the essence of the creative outcome as each viewer adds layer upon layer of personal meaning.
