Handmade characters, creatures and creations... all from recycled, preloved and precious pieces of clothes and materials. 

Welcome to my website. My online shop is stocked with hookheads and other little creatures. My commissions book is open all year round - just get in touch.

I use first class UK delivery although might take longer than usual in this current crisis. If you would me to send to somewhere else in the world please get in touch. 

All single hookheads come in a gift box. Animabaubles and tweedy birds too. I can add in a gift message and send directly to the recipient - just let me know.

I also do commissions. Please get in touch if you are interested. They are a very fun and personal present to give. Check out below for some examples. 

wooltide commissions

If you are interested in a commission please get in touch with me. I will need photos of the animal in question. 


I do make every effort to capture the essence of the animal in question however you must remember that I am working with preloved fabrics and the end result is a not going to be an exact replica of your beloved creature!  

My single hookhead commissions cost £40 plus postage and the lead time is approximately one month. Each hookhead comes in a gift box and can also be sent directly to the recipient with a message from you. Just let me know what you would like written...

Endangered animals bighead series

I made these Bigheads (all from old coats) for East Neuk Open Studios. I can make more if you would like...please get in touch if you are interested. I will donate 10% of the price to the charity WWF. 


About wooltide

My name is Jen and I live with my family, Tess the dog and Daisy the campervan in the East Neuk of Fife, Scotland.

I am a self taught textile artist and have been making for quite a few years now. I have always used recycled materials for all sorts of reasons...environmental as well as my love of textures, patterns and history of the fabrics I use.


My workshop is full of bright colours and I live on the coast and am even lucky enough to see the sea from my window. The items I create are often useful and practical as well as decorative with a hint of humour thrown into the mix. I actually have been known to giggle while I make...
