The Artist - Karen Barton

After inspiration from craft fairs and a workshop in early 2020 I progressed from a simple needle felting blue tit kit to my own sculptures themed on my passion for birds of prey. They have a wire armature with layers of wool to create the body shape; the plumage detail, beak, legs and feet etc. are then added. Wings and tail are made separately by either wet or needle felting. I hope to capture something of their hunter spirit. I love the versatility and forgiving nature of wool, it mixes like paint and sculpts like clay. Iím very excited as this is my first exhibition.
