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 a 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, soap and our hands!

I had a wonderful experience with Vera in this workshop. She contacted me in advance to check my colour preference so she could dye the silk and made sure that the beautiful merino wool and threads she provided were according to the colour palette I requested. From the moment I met Vera, she was warm and welcoming and happy to share her knowledge of felting with me. I appreciated her help and suggestions and the confidence she gave me to make my first felted scarf. I love my creation and can't wait to wear it and show it off. I look forward to more courses with you. :) Belinda
