Wandering around Folksy, as you do, I came across Cherith's new shop, 'Ambags'. Even though I make bags, I can never resist another's. Cherith is a university student in Bristol, so quite local to me. I thought it would be lovely to feature a fellow local artist for a change.
Cherith started making handmade felt while studying A-level art at college and was introduced to the felting technique at this time by her Mum who leads felt workshops. Felt is an extremely versatile material to work with and she enjoys making seamless moulded felt bags as no two pieces turn out the same, they evolve as they are being made and final bags can sometimes be completely different to the original idea.
