Heartfelt at Dalmally Station is a new venue for Heartfelt by Liz.
Dalmally station is a working railway station on the Caledonian line, just 40 minutes from Oban and two hours from Glasgow. Step off the train into the former ticket office and you will now see a studio full of Liz’s creations and delightful local crafts.
Dalmally Station is a wonderful sandstone building built in 1875, now being restored it will eventually reveal the Duke of Argyll’s waiting room, which still exists.
Many of Liz’s skills involve teaching the craft of Feltmaking and Dalmally Station is the perfect setting to come and learn! A wide range of workshops are on offer. Open to the visiting public throughout the season.
HeavenlyFelt designs unique accessories and home decorations made from 100% wool felt. Each one is carefully and lovingly handstitched.
Artist in Textiles and mixed media, Helen Suzanne Sharratt having moved to the mainland from her hebridean home now lives and works in the Scottish Highlands, where the landscape inspires her creative work.
Helena's work is inspired by absorbing and observing the ever changing light, moods and weather on the beautiful Isle of Skye where she lives.
Helena reflects on Skye’s coastal landscapes in her textile pieces which are made from hand-dyed threads and beach-combed driftwood that she has found and delicately shaped. Helena hand-colours thread to create her own subtle palette of shimmering tones, then carefully wraps them around selected pieces of driftwood to build unique panels. Each piece aims to evoke, in essence, the presence of the sea, natural rhythms, tides, shorelines and seasons which surround Helena and infuse her work. The finished pieces harmonise lustre and matte qualities. They are instinctive, restrained and precise, being drawn from the sea, both physically and imaginatively.
