Throughout her life Tessa has maintained a passion for art and crafts and has studied textiles, textile techniques, millinery and silversmithing. Tessa's work includes a variety of individual `one of a kind' pieces, ranging from hand rolled felt, three dimensional work such as hats, bags and fine nuno felted garments, she enjoys using wool as a medium for creating pictures. Some of her pieces are embroidered, beaded or embellished with wire. Tessa designs and makes hand and machine knitted items as well as creating felt hats and fabric hats using millinery techniques; she enjoy dyeing, sometimes dyeing the fibres for her felted works but she also enjoys using Shibori techniques on silk scarves.

A member of Angus Crafts Association, Tessa runs workshops in feltmaking as well as other textile techniques. Some of her work is on display at `HAND PICT' 14 The Square, Letham, Angus, she also sells at Craft Fairs and undertakes commissions. 

 

Inspiration for Tessa's work comes from art, architechture and nature and what she sees around her, however sometimes she just enjoy the serendippity that occurs through `play' and `what if?'
