Lorraine was fortunate to take part in Michala's 'Experimenting with Wool and Thread' workshop. She writes:
"We had a super time listening to how Michala got into textiles and then enjoyed our time creating some inspiring ideas using the felting techniques demonstrated. At last I have got quite a lot achieved, and now look forward to completing my sampler to display at the next meeting. "
Michala explained how her early childhood, bought up in a rural landscape, and her love of music, inspires her work.
Her sketchbooks and pastel drawings of trees and landscape inform beautiful works created in needle-felt, hand, and machine embroidery, from small brooches to huge blankets.
