Sarah’s life has always been intertwined with sheep and wool. At the age of 13 Sarah started breeding Rare Breeds of sheep and learning to spin, weave and dye. There was a natural progression in to studying Agriculture and so ultimately running her own sheep farm was no surprise.

Sarah is an artist with a passion for feltmaking that originates from her love of sheep. Living in the New Forest, UK her work reflects her desire to connect with nature and the importance of sustainability. Sarah uses local fleeces where possible and is passionate about supporting the British Wool Industry. ​

Sarah now has over twenty years of experience in teaching feltmaking from school children, adults with learning difficulties to community projects. She currently runs her own business teaching, exhibiting in the UK and internationally and selling her work though galleries and online.
