About the Book
'Motherhood, A Textile Exploration' was created by Omi for her final degree show. (Foundation in Textiles and Surface Design). She asked family and friends about their experiences of motherhood. Omi created 2 felt dresses, some felt baby shoes and a small pile of felt manuscripts decorated with the words, thoughts and feelings she had gathered. These and her own recipe make up this softback book.
Omi is a feltmaker who likes to make Art books out of felt.. She is part of the Garden Shed and has her studio at National Trust, Gibside in Gateshead. She has 4 children, a very large dog, makes her own bread, hoola hoops and enjoys walking the very large dog.
