 Use sheep’s wool and a barbed needle to make a 2D textural work based on nature and then embellish your work with embroidery, stitching and beads.

Needle felting is a dry felting technique where a barbed needle is used to repeatedly jab fibres. This process tangles and compacts the fibres together. The needle is used as a sculptural tool to create flat or three-dimensional pieces of art.  

Alice Cowdrey is a Taranaki-based textile artist who specialises in needle felting. She mostly works with sheep’s wool to felt works of art but also incorporates knitting embroidery and stitching. Alice looks to nature, animals and folk art for inspiration and likes to tell stories which incorporate her Eastern European ancestry, myth and spirituality.
