Spring Market Artisan Profile: Heike Fink of Feltastic Fibre
Heike Fink has discovered the ancient art of felting in 2003 and was instantly fascinated by this magical process.
She is mostly attracted by the lightness and fluffiness of the wool, all the different colors, the smooth tactile touch of the wet soapy wool and the versatility felting does offer. From sculptures to flat wool images to goods for daily use - loose wool fibres can be transformed into almost anything. Heike makes scarves, booties, purses, vessels, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, barrettes, brooches, figures, animals, and whatever else comes to her imagination.
