Kaye Louwen

I have always loved making things and have done a lot of dressmaking in years gone by. I am a retired Maths teacher, so am not afraid of calculating shrinkages and helping others to understand this process. I have been felting for around 14 years now and have attended many workshops with local and International feltmakers.

After attending a number of jacket and dress workshops I have come up with my own patterns and methods.
I have run many beginner felting workshops, both privately and for FIGS (Felters In the Great Southern), of which I was a member during my 9 years in Mt Barker. I hosted a 3 day advanced workshop in Mt Barker to make a nuno-felted sleeveless coat with a shawl collar.

I have participated in a number of group exhibitions and a solo one in 2018 at the Riverfront Gallery in Denmark WA. This was featured in the Australian Felt Magazine.

I have won prizes for my felted creations in the Plantagenet Art Prize. Feltmaking gives me much joy and I love to share my skills with others and meet with other creative people
