Greetings Cards for all Occasions
Textile Artistry by Elizabeth Swift
Elizabeth is a textile artist from New Mills. She has framed prints, as well as quality greeting cards of hand felted artworks of birds, animals and landscape. Elizabeth is inspired by her passion for wildlife and the natural world. She describes her work as ‘painting with fibres’.
Wool fleece, silk and other materials are layered over a bamboo mat and then compressed with a wooden felting roller and hot soapy water until the fibres knit together to form one piece of felt. Once dry, detail is added using a barbed felting needle. Her artworks are colourful and early sales suggest they will be very popular!
