About the maker:
Tamzen is a textile professional of 25+years’ experience, she is a previous Chairperson of Feltmakers Ireland (the National Guild of Feltmakers) and a recipient of the “Emerging Maker Award” from Craft NI in 2023.
Tamzen’s work is playful, she is inspired by stories and the Irish landscape, a mix of the sweet and the subversive. The work is designed to make you smile, laugh, think, and inspire your inner child. She uses 100% wool fibre to make a strong, long lasting but fully sustainable and biodegradable product.
When she sells online all her packaging for delivery is reused, when selling through shops she makes sure that all packaging is recycled and recyclable.
Felt making is the oldest textile making process in the world. It uses 100% wool (and sometimes other natural fibres), soap and water plus rubbing, rolling and a little magic! The only tools required to make this woollen textile are your hands.
Born in Belfast in the 1970’s, she now works from her home in Maynooth, Co. Kildare, surrounded by fibre, up to her elbows in soap lather, dancing to the radio, chatting with the three kids and whooshing the cat off the table!
