Elena's Felting — Fibre
We came to Canada almost 17 years ago from Russia. I have a family – husband and son; I work as a Drafter, and I have a wonderful hobby – felting.
Felting is a long traditional craft in my native Kazakhstan and Russia where I was born and raised. The people there continue to use felt in many interesting and creative ways.
I started doing felting in 2009; I took several workshops from Canadian and international feltmakers. With a time it became more than hobby – in 2010 I opened my Internet Etsy store (www.etsy.com/shop/elenasfelting); then I started participating in different Crafts and Arts shows.
In my projects I use 100% natural wool from different sheep breeds from all
around the world. Some of my craftwork is displayed at Cambridge Centre for the Arts (Cambridge, ON).
