About the Tutor:

Katherine is a Sydney based fibre artist, specializing in felt making. She has a background in fine
arts, but fell in love with felting in 2015 when she participated in an introductory felt making class.
Since that time her passion and curiosity for felting has grown, the infinitive possibilities of what
can be created from the process of felting always exciting and stimulating. Her passion and
curiosity in wanting to learn more of the craft has led her to participate in numerous workshops
led by talented local and international felt artists. A highlight has been travelling to Hungary in
2018 and attending a series of workshops with master Hungarian Felters.
She has led workshops for ATASDA (Australian Textiles and Surface Design Association) at the

at Timeless Textiles, (a gallery dedicated to the fibre arts and artisans) as well as Grassroots Eco
