Oosie Felt is run by Glasgow textile artist Sue Gerber, producing exuberant handmade felt decorations, artworks and accessories.
Susan has spent many years developing her skills in several different crafts working principally with Textiles, Fibres, Beads, Wire, Paper and found objects.
Susie designs and creates unique one-off hand painted silk pieces. In addition to a large range of beautiful silk scarves she produces greetings cards, ties, wallhangings, necklaces, brooches, corsages, mounted and framed paintings and unusual silk bowls.
I create collections of hand-woven, dyed and printed textiles for contemporary interiors and clothing, as well as more conceptual installation pieces to be commissioned for display in galleries or other commercial spaces. Bespoke items are created to commemorate individual “rites of passage”, textile items to be be given at birth, death, marriage, and other personal ceremonies, weaving symbolic items, colours and imagery into hangings, cot mobiles, shawls and shrouds etc.
Suzanne Kelly is a BA Fine Arts (New York Institute of Technology) and a MAF from Edinburgh College of Art. She has worked in various media in fine and applied art, but has lately turned almost exclusively to fabric arts.
Quilts, fine dressing gowns, casual and evening handbags, soft furnishings (curtains, pillows, duvet covers, etc.) and especially fabric covered boxes are now Suzanne's main products. She works on her own as well as with two other crafts people, who are predominantly costume designers.
A collector by nature, I am constantly gathering and storing relics of the past. From vintage lace to chocolate boxes, I enjoy transforming old materials by recycling and feel that their use in the creation of new objects allows faded memories to live on in a different form. My range of work includes jewellery in mixed materials, decorative felt cakes and boxes of felt chocolates.
Contemporary wallhangings/panels, cushions, scarves, bags, brooches, keyrings, fridge magnets, pots and bowls; handcrafted in Scotland from handmade felt in vibrant and exciting colours. Accessories are available as ‘one offs’ or multiples. The felt wallhangings/panels can be 2D or 3D and are especially good for areas where sound absorption is required.
