About Mary-anne Wright

Mary-ann began being fascinated with the diversity, colour, feel and warmth of hand felted merino wool 4 years ago following attendance at a workshop with Rachel Meek at Cowra Art Gallery. She has since attended workshops with Katia Mokeyeva from the US and Pam de Groot from the Blue Mountains and also participated in online lessons to further her knowledge of working with wool and understanding its properties.

Mary-ann produces everything from nuno felted scarves using silk and superfine merino(beautifully soft and warm on the skin), hats of all shapes and sizes, ipad and journal covers ,jewellery and hand bags. She has recently been trying her hand at felted wall hangings and even incorporating lighting into these. She is also interested in working with wool in a sculptural way.

Handmade felt is so versatile it can be as soft as a feather on the skin or hardy enough to produce long wearing articles for the home.

Mary-ann is a qualified music teacher and works on her felting in her spare time. She would love to have more time for this beautiful pastime.
