Marion Dawson


Felt Textile Artist

Marion’s colourful felt includes fashion garments, accessories, interior pieces, wall art and sculptural forms.

Following traditional methods of felt-making, everything she makes is created entirely by hand using Australian Merino wool.

She allows her felt pieces to evolve, so that each piece is a uniquely individual “one off” offering and her sculptural artworks portray a message.

Marion’s experience running sheep and having a wool-classing qualification gives her a deep understanding of the versatility and resilience of this amazing fibre.

Sometimes sensual, sometimes practical, and usually colourful, felt has taken Marion on an amazing journey. She has been a member of the Collective since 2006.



There’s so much to look at, we suggest you come and browse. If you just can’t choose between the 2 or 3 (or more) items you simply have to have, why not take a moment to sit down and relax, and have lunch or coffee at one of the cafes just next to our gallery. And when you come back in, you’ll know exactly which work of art is right for you.

Come and find us in Gay's Arcade, inside Adelaide Arcade in Rundle Mall, Adeaide. We’d love to see you.
