Lindsey Tyson

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.
