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.

Helping Small Businesses Startup, Grow & Find Their Passion.
I can help small businesses find their strengths, grow their online presence and build on their most profitable sectors. My experience comes from working in Business Solutions for large-scale organisations for 15+ years and most importantly from running my own small businesses. I have an MBA from Edinburgh Business School but it means zilch compared with 15 years in the hot seat of my own eCommerce company.
If you’d like help to launch a new project, improve your business performance, get more sales or free up time by working more effectively, please get in touch.
refelt re.worked re.cycled
refelt is a concept developed by Hala Zaluczkowska, involving the reworking and recycling fashion and textiles. Quality fashion items such as coats; suits; hats and accessories are collected and worked on to create an individual and tailored item. Textiles are recycled to make tactile blankets and throws and furnishings with a bespoke offer. Each item is considered individually to create re-loved, re-worked pieces for a contemporary market. Felt is incorporated into both fashion and textile items.
I am an artist based in North Shields, where I run groups and classes through my community interest company. I also run creative days at the coast in Low Hauxley near Amble. Full details of any of the classes can be found on my website under creative classes. I can also organise classes to fit with your plans/wishes. I work primarily with felt and fibre but not exclusively. I embrace an environmentally friendly ethic in my work and encourage it in others. I am a former professional photographer who strongly believes everyone can improve their own sense of happiness and well being by enjoying, exploring and embracing their own creativity. I also collaborate with Elaine Maughan, a natural energy healer, to hold spiritually creative days.
