My name is Vera Alexandrova, I am a fashion and textile designer working with natural fibres such as wool, silk, etc. My love for felting began many years ago when I studied fashion design in National Research University based in Moscow, Russia where I am from originally.

Since then I developed number of my own techniques which I use to create my unique and environmentally friendly products. Amongst my customers are people from all around the world who appreciate the beauty of natural materials.

My works have participated in numerous exhibitions and shows in Russia and Australia and have won top awards.

I can share my love and passion towards wool, and teach you how to make unique things from wool and silk.

No sewing machines!
Just wool, silk, water, soup and our hands!
