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.

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.
