Jane Firth

inspired my interest in sheep. Needlefelting is an ideal medium to capture the textures and colours that characterise the animals that are my subjects. Where possible I use wool from that breed. Initially, I felted portraits of local Cumbrian sheep, but now I do a wide variety of different breeds as well as some goats, Highland cows, alpacas, ponies and hares. For the last two years, I have been needlefelting the Rare Breeds Survival Trust danger list to highlight the importance of saving these animals.
