About These hands made it
I am Fiona, artist, designer and writer.
These hands made it has been along time in the dreaming, and I am so delighted that it has come to fruition and I am creating pieces that people love.
I have been painting and sculpting for as long as I can remember. My Mother and Grandmother were both expert seamstresses, lace makers, embroiderers and knitters: amazing skills that I definitely did not inherit. 4 years ago I discovered the ancient craft of felting, knowing that I can make a durable and beautiful piece of fabric without having to touch a sewing machine still feels like a miracle to me.
I make wraps, bags, wall-hangings, household items and sculptural pieces from fine merino wool, cashmere and silk fibres.
You will see a broad range of my work here and an exciting new product is just in the market research phase now.
If you see anything you like the look of but want a different colour, or have an idea of something you would like I am happy to talk about it with you. I can make something utterly unique just for you.
