Sharon Wells 

Hello, let me introduce myself.  I am felmaker for the past 20 years and I work with wool, silk and other natural fibres to produce unique and individual felted pictures and other wool based products. I add detail with needlefelting,  hand embroidery and machine embroidery.  Naturally from working with wool fibre, I learnt to wash, card, dye, and  spin, and weave on peg looms. I also knit a little and crochet badly.

I have participated in a number of group exhibitions and had my work featured on RTE’s Nationwide. I am a member of Feltmakers Ireland and Wicklow Craft Foundation. And delighted to be included on Wicklow's first Craft Trail 

I love to teach and I am a TAP (Teacher Artist Partnership) trained artist in residence. So I get to bring feltmaking to primary schools which is such a delight. I also teach secondary schools, homeschool groups and adults.

Although I mostly concentrate on feltmaking I like to teach wool processing and dyeing.  I also teach hand and machine embroidery, coiled basket making, decoupage, eco printing, and artefact illustration. I source, wash and dye wool direct from Irish farms for my own work.  And I use wool from my parents attic and random yarn and fibre gifted to me.


I am the coordinator of the Muddle tutor group who teach a wide range of arts and crafts. I believe creativity and community are fundamental for wellbeing. 

I have an MA in Archaeology which concentrates on Archaeological Ilustrations from the 18th century in Ireland. I have worked as an Archaeological Illustrator and in online training as a project manager. 

Growing up in Kerry I fell in love with the landscape which led to studying archaeology and then to making felted landscape art. I love to paint and draw and spend time with my family and my crafty friends.  I have one dog and three cats and love animals of all types. If I could I would have my own flock of sheep, a buffalo and a rhinoceros, and several horses. But as I hate leaving animals outside this won't be happening.

Currently my work is stocked in
