Anna Turnbull creates unique items for sale and delivers feltmaking, basketry and willow sculpture workshops at a variety of locations in Northumberland and the Scottish Borders and bespoke workshops for groups and schools. She also welcomes commissions.
She makes hand felted wearable items, first ‘painting’ with a varied palette of dyed wools, and then felting them to create something delicate and ephemeral using fine wools and silks, or using more sculptural techniques to form vessels.
She also uses many varieties of coloured willows grown locally for basketry, and the traditional techniques used to work with them, to create baskets and sculptures.

Last year I started the shoebox scheme for local families in need. It was very successful. This year Carlos fish and chip shop in Alnwick is the drop off point for toys, groceries and shoeboxes and hampers. People should cover the shoebox in Christmas paper and put a note on top secured with elastic band as to who it is for. eg. elderly man, elderly woman, child, boy or girl age group or single man or woman. Shoeboxes should contain special gifts for the recipient. We have many families locally that need help. Please let us know of anyone you think may need help. 2nd hand toys in good condition, food for the food bank, luxury items for the hampers and filled shoeboxes are all welcome. If you cant do a shoebox, one or two items are still most gratefully accepted. I am looking for volunteers to organise the same in different parts of Northumberland.
