Vivienne Morpeth

← Back to Tutors

Vivienne has been making felt for over twenty five years and continues to be fascinated by the integrity and qualities of working dynamically with sheeps fleece to create 2D and 3D felted fleece. She was captivated by the possibilities of making fabric from such a luscious, richly textured and tactile primary source. Vivienne learnt to make felt from master feltmaker and former ArtisOn tutor Shiela Smith along with many others and she is a member of the International Feltmakers Association (IFA).

Her lwork is a range wearables, art hangings, accessories, puppets and garden birds. Her home near the River Humber in North Lincolnshire and many years of observation of this great tidal expanse and vast flat rural stretches below an uninterrupted sky has influenced the tones and colours in her felts. She mostly uses the traditional handrolling felting techniques to try to capture the movement , intense tones and imagination of this power river and earthy landscape with delicate wisps of soft sheep’s wool , incorporating my hand dyed silks, nuno and resist techniques.
