June at Heartfelt Studio

Heartfelt Studio is a hidden gem of textile interest both from a historical interest on Scotland with such traditional skills such as weaving , spinning and dyeing. It is also a hub of modern ideas and innovation for other textile skills such as felt making in its varied forms as well as imprint dyeing with natural plant materials. We even have our own dye plants growing in their custom flower bed.

Visiting is always interesting as there are many different activities here. We run lots of workshops right throughout the year but we also produce some very unique creations which we sell through our Studio.

We often have prearranged visits  from organised groups and provide demonstrations and workshops which can be booked.

I am very excited to be involved in a residency at The Childrens Wood in Glasgow. The Children’s Wood on North Kelvin Meadow, and the Meadow itself, make up the last wild space in the west-end of Glasgow. The land is currently under threat – the council want to sell the land for high-end housing. Lots of pictures soon on this.

June will be a busy month for me , we have two workshops open to the public this month
