Carol works mostly in fine Australian wool, often mixing it with silk and other natural fibres to create felt fabric which she uses to produce bags, jackets, shawls and brooches.
Carol began felting in 1987 as a form of stress management, away from her work as an international software company executive. It quickly became an obsession.
Transforming fleece into a completely new fabric still strikes her as mysterious and magical.
Carol starts with a concept and then works backwards to create the felt she needs, using both traditional and innovative techniques. This frees her imagination and provides opportunities for happy accidents to influence the finished product. Carol joined he Collective in 2013.
