This winter has really given me challenges

This winter has really given many different challenges. At my studio I have had several private courses and it is a very exiting way to teach.My group courses have got a new theme.

Doll Of The Month – March 2013

The doll of the month for March is this grey striped cat that is sitting in the spring sunshine. The cat is needle felted with wool from a German factory where they produce yarn for knitting and they had a lot of waste, which could not be used for anything, but for me it was perfect because it was dyed in stripes that inspired to make cats.

Doll Of The Month – February 2013

The doll of the month this February is a snow owl. I have worked very much with owls during the last years and with many kinds of owls so when we got a beautiful snow covered Denmark I had to find white wool that could fit for a snow owl.

Doll Of The Month – January 2013

The new year begins with this little snow-white kitten that looks a little anxious being out in the big nature for the first time. I was inspired to make the kitten because I got some very beautiful home-carded finn-wool from one of my customers, and for a while I had wanted to make a little cat so here was the opportunity.

Doll Of The Month – December 2012

This month I have, as I use to do every year, chosen a pixie as doll of the month here in December. My workshop is already full of all my very different pixies and the one I have chosen for you is this Father Christmas with his white beard and his red braces. He has even a repaired hole on the knee of his trousers.

The 2012 course season is finished

I have now finished the course season for 2012 and in my workshop many kinds of pixies, angels and Santa Claus figures are giving a cozy atmosphere of Christmas.

Addi Quick – the new 3d-felting machine

The new felting machine ADDI QUICK. I think you should know about this quite new machine that Jessica von der Fecht from Germany has developed.

Doll Of The Month – November 2012

The dolls of the month for this November are two little singing birds. They have nearly natural size and they are from this technique for birds I have worked with the last half year. I love to study the birds and find pictures of them until I know in every detail how this certain bird, that I will make, looks. I use a very very fine rainbow dyed merino for them, so I have all the shades of beautiful colors I need to make them look alive.

Doll Of The Month – October 2012

This month I have selected one of my lamps as doll of the month. I have made the lamp with my friend Guri Petersen who has made three sides of the lamp which are made of skin from reindeer. The skin is dyed in henna and roibush and has a wonderful warm golden brown color when the lamp is turned on.

Doll Of The Month – September 2012

This dog that is doll of the month in September is needled basically on a cylindered shape with a head needled onto it. The cylinder is chosen because I wanted to show how the staples of wool can be used one by one and how clear you can see the staples the way they are needled on from bottom to top.
