Heidi Street-Ward


Heidi creates felted hangings, bags and other items using dyed merino wool. Inspiration is often taken from patterns within landscapes. Heidi's felt pieces are created by rubbing and rolling wool together with warm soapy water to enable the wool fibres to bond together to form a firm material.


Felt Making Workshops in Schools

Heidi is a specialist felt maker and has over 16 years experience of running felt making workshops in primary, secondary and special schools within the UK. Heidi has worked with many local authorities, community organisations and with young people / adults with learning difficulties and disabilities.

 

Felt making workshops are a fun and educational art activity in which creative and imaginative pieces of hand-made felt or large wall hangings can be made. Heidi will supply all the equipment and materials needed for a workshop and holds a current Public Liability and DBS Certificate. Please see Heidi's website for more information: www.feltmakinginschools.co.uk

 

"Heidi was a delight to have in school, interacting wonderfully with both adults and children. The felt hanging is an excellent and great record of our school".
