In The Press

Since starting Jackdaw Felts in 2019, I've been amazed at how popular my tiny felting world has become, my most recent publication is in Needle Felt Magazine.

What is Needle Felting?!

In a nutshell, it's the process of transforming wool into 3D objects using a barbed needle.

When you felt wool with a barbed needle, you're agitating the fibres so they bond together, creating a solid piece.

I've recently started filming 'studio vlogs' as well as tutorials over on my YouTube channel. You can find me here

Custom Sculptures and Commissions

Whether it be a custom pet portrait, a unicorn in a specific colourway or your favourite species of bird, I would absolutely love to felt it for you!

Commissioning a piece is really easy- simply drop me an email of what you'd like me to make! I normally ask for photos (the more the merrier) and some details like name, breed etc and we go from there. Sculptures are priced per complexity, for instance, a dog with a longer, more complex coat will cost more than a short haired, solid coloured dog.

Please drop me an email here to get in touch about your scultpure! I look forward to hearing from you :)

"I commissioned Tara to make a needlefelt sculpture of my cat who sadly passed away last year and I am just completely and utterly blown away by her talent and how accurately she portrayed him.

First of all Tara is just the kindest, friendliest person to work with! She has been lovely from start to finish and has put up with me sending her billions of photos of him at every possible angle. I love that I got to see a little behind the scenes video on her social media as he was being made too.

The moment the finished sculpture just arrived was a big one - I burst into tears when I opened the parcel! Even though I had seen clips of him as she was working on him it was still such a big moment to see the sculpture in real life for the first time. She captured him so well and there are so many little details that are just perfect like his "beard" and even the little tabby markings next to his eyes! He is worth every penny and I'm so grateful to have a mini-Chewy on my shelf keeping an eye on us" -Cat Lane
