Hello, My name is Sharon Shaul, I am a felting and fibre artist, living in Darwen Lancashire.
Having been raised within a family involved in various stages of the textile industry, one of my earliest memories includes visiting a wool mill in Yorkshire, to select fabrics with my father. I remember visiting an elderly lady ( well she seemed elderly at the time to my 4 year old self) who had a spinning wheel and loom in her home. Here I was also originally introduce to feltmaking.
These memories faded with the long and winding road of life, only to be revisited in 2005 when I was looking for a new focus, after spending years working in education. Looms and spinning wheels were purchased along with a range of books to teach myself to felt, weave and spin, along with other supporting materials.
These became my new hobbies: making textile art, weaving, spinning and feltmaking. I set up my studio in 2006 and have continued since then working on a range of projects according to my mood and inspiration at the time.
Now I mainly produce my felt landscapes for myself, but I do exhibit at selected events and galleries throughout the north-west. I am a member of the Internalional Felt Makers Association, also the "Art and Crafts Guild in Lancashire".
If you wish to know anything or are interested in any of my items please send me a message through the contact page.
