Hello there, I am a fiber artist based in Chester with a focus on creating cute cartoon style felted creations.

I have sold custom creations all over the world as well as developing new felting techniques. I believe in using all-natural materials and that needle felting can be learnt by anyone with a little bit of time, patience and determination.

Really enjoyed learning a completely new craft. Materials sent were excellent - lots to try again with after the class

Jex is an incredible host, lots of patience and really fun to learn with. They have a great 'can do' attitude and brilliant sense of humour. The class was fun and informative which ran on time and to schedule. We had a lot of employees joining the class remotely from home, some joining in with heir families and others just taking part solo and it worked fabulously well. Couldn't recommend enough. Thank You!
