Elsie & Fleur

We had a cuppa and a chat with our fab felter Dawn Wesley earlier this week and here’s what we discovered…

Tea or coffee? 

Oh it has to be tea! Made in a big pot with breakfast tea and just a hint of earl grey.

Where is your favourite place to go in the Westcountry?

The Camel Estuary in North Cornwall.

If money was no object, where in the world would you most like to go?

Italy, I love the Mediterranean and in Italy there is culture, wonderful architecture and the ocean. It can be both intense and simplistic depending on where you go.

What’s your favourite film? 

This is a difficult choice but I think it will have to be…The bridges of Madison County because it moves me every time.

What is the most important tool to help you when you’re crafting?

My hands....Wet felting is my favorite craft and I love the feel of different surfaces as I hand felt different breeds of wool, cotton and silks. 

In a normal week, how much time do you spend crafting?

50 hours.... I love what I do so I continue into the evenings.

What do you enjoy most about making?

Creating something unique, with hand crafting every item is different.
