We’ve never tried felting before but might give it a stab specially after seeing the exquisite works of textile artist and designer Lindsey Tyson. The UK-based artist is a weaver by trade but has successfully sidestepped into the art of felt making creating a line that is both tactile and sophisticated. She is inspired by the sea, landscape and nature of the North Yorkshire coast.
You can follow the artist on Facebook and on her website where she list shops that carry her line.

Revisiting slow crafter, needle-felter, illustrator and puppet stop-motion video artist, Hine Mizushima. The Japanese born Vancouver-based designer has exhibited her felt designs in galleries internationally. Using felt and fabric she creates sculptural works of mushrooms, insects, sea creatures, often a tribute to less popular life forms. You can see more of her work on Behance and purchase felt creations and prints on Etsy and Society6.

These gutsy creations bring many of us back to our rite of passage, frog dissection. The knitted anatomy is the creation of knitter and crafter, Emily Stoneking. The Vermont-based artisan creates these hand-knit artwork to explore places where art and science intersect. You can purchase these designs at her Etsy shop, aKNITomy.
