Jan Wooldridge:- Needlecrafter
Jan’s Wool Work
“By day I work in finance and admin, but in the evenings and at weekends, needle-felting takes over. I am so glad I’ve found a craft that creates a haven away from my working life.
I stumbled upon needle-felting about a year and a half ago when I was searching for some new creative ideas to decorate the house. I sent away for a kit and quickly became hooked on this craft. I never considered myself as creative or arty so it’s been a real pleasure to be able to produce these little works in wool. There are still so many projects I’d like to make.”
Tasha Easton:- Artist
Tasha Easton has always been passionate about art. She studied art at A-level and has continued to pursue art in her spare time whilst raising her two children. She is an active member of the Crowthorne and Sandhurst Art Society, and is continually increasing her skills by exploring art techniques by other artists and developing her own methods.
Tasha is a lover of nature, and many of her pictures are of animals. She loves going into the fine detail – the look in an eye or the way the feathers or fur look. She enjoys working in acrylics, pastels and pen particularly, but is always interested in trying new media and techniques. If you are interested in viewing more works or initiating a commissioned piece please see Web and Facebook addresses:

Marion is a well-established artist mastering works in many mediums, it is a pleasure to be showing her whimsical needle felt characters.
“Around three years ago I began needle felting. I started by making small dogs and animals, I was intrigued by the versatility of the wool. I went on to produce both animal portraits and more recently landscapes using the felting method. I am constantly amazed by the colour tones and range that can be created.
Although it seems an unusual hobby, I find it compelling and therapeutic, except when you stick the needle in your finger! I have been increasingly asked about my method and how to needle craft. This encouraged me to set up instructional classes at the Woodley Wool Shop and now run a couple of classes there on a Wednesday. Please get in contact for details
