So who is Edwina Sutherland anyway? Well, a picture tells you one thing: I have curly hair and a big smile.
I love creating art, using textiles as my medium. My career has been spent drowning in fabric, creating historic reproduction costumes for historic sites and museums. That means people wear my stuff and pretend to be living in another era.
In between that, I started making little figures in costume and other fantasy outfits. Call them art dolls, dolls, figurative art. They tell stories to each person who looks at them.
I am always experimenting with new techniques, love making things with wool, which usually means needle felting or wet felting. I have done the knitted and shrunk in the washer kind of thing, but I don’t call that felting. Technically, it’s fulling.
But I digress. I love to share what I am creating and selling, whether it be a pattern to make one of my figures or supplies to have a go yourself, or letting you know which dolls are listed for sale on my Etsy store : “Not Carved In Stone.” I also host a web site/ online store "Edwina dolls.com"
I love to share. I do that through the blog, which keeps you up to date with what’s sewing on at the studio. And yes, I have a studio. What a lucky person I am!! Space in which to create. Well, some of my costumes do take up a lot of space!
So enjoy what I share with you, as I enjoy the sharing . I love your comments and feedback.
