Getting crafty at the pop-up studio with felter, Eve Marshall

Eve has been crafting with felt for more than fourteen years, utilising a range of wet and dry felting techniques. Her original artwork pieces boast more than 50 fine wool layers, and she incorporates other textural elements to create depth and realism. Nature and wildlife have always been a source of inspiration for Eve, who enjoys pushing the limits of wool to create intricate details.

She has a collection of pieces inspired by Barnsdale Gardens and will be showcasing her work and giving demos in the studio. Additionally, she will be offering a selection of gifts including cushions, glass worktop savers, mugs, and coasters.
Free with admission.

This month, the two flowering cherry trees add to the garden’s beauty.
