Wearable Art Gallery

I find Wearable Art an exciting three dimensional opportunity which serves to grace the human form, lift the fragile spirit, and illustrate the expressive self. The following collection contains examples of many techniques that I offer through workshops.

This gallery is for inspiration only ... not for sale.   For saleable items visit our Felt Boutique
