Karen Rao - Felt Artist

A felted hat in the shape of a ram's head with horns

I create animal Inspired costume wear in the stunningly tactile medium of felt, worn for theatre, festivals and just for fun! This dramatic wearable art follows the ancient method of wet felting using just wool, soap and water. Find my eared and horned headdresses alongside complimentary fingerless gloves and cuffs, felted bird wing capes and moth wings, clip on ears and versatile felt and feather brooch, hat pin or hair accessory. New for 2021 are a range of vastly different yet interlinking Japanese inspired sumie ink paintings. This minimalist style of animal and avian art is bold and elegant yet compliments my felt art.
