wooltide commissions

If you are interested in a commission please get in touch with me. I will need photos of your animal from different angles and I will also need to know of any important distinguishing features! 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! :D Here are some examples of commissions I have done in the past.


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...I hope this is reflected in my work.
