Ellen van der Wiel
Ellen van der Wiel makes appealing (acoustic) felt paintings and felt cushions. She makes felt by laying down and felting layers of wool - sometimes mixed with silk, flax or bamboo - in various colors and graphic patterns. These canvases are then cut into strips and reassembled in a rhythmic way, creating designs with clean lines. Ellen van der Wiel will be regularly present in the studio and shop.
Zsofia makes beautiful hats from felt. Each hat is a work of art to wear. She shapes the wool like clay into flowing shapes. The hats have a very good fit and are notable for their high quality. There are a number of hats available in the shop. But you can also order a hat in your desired color, shape and size.
