Ursula has been working with fiber all of her life, moving from utilitarian objects to artistic expression in knitting, sewing, and weaving. About 10 years ago, she took a felting workshop and the process. she relates, “was love at first sight.” Ursula has since managed to combine all of her fiber skills in a unique way and continues to marvel at the way color and texture appear like magic.
“I tried my hand at binding books with textured, felted covers and have been addicted to that process ever since, making sketchbooks,journals, watercolor books, personal telephone books, photo albums, and art inspirations books,” she states. Ursula instructed a felting class in 2017 that was a huge success. She was patient, attentive and her instructions were clear and concise. All attendees were excited and creative, making whatever they chose including place mats, wall hangings, purses and more.
