Welcome to Chrysalis Art to Wear – January 2020

Chrysalis Art to Wear is the outlet for Textile Artist Chrissie Menzies & the Studio is situated on their small farm in the middle of the Welsh Hills in Powys, Wales UK & started in 2006.

I work mainly in felt using wet felting techniques to produce a range of bags, rucksacks, fingerless gloves, wraps, scarves & Art Collars.  I also Eco Print onto wool & silk scarves using leaves from my own & my friends’ gardens.  Colour & texture are my main inspirations.  Hand embroidery is added to some of my work as well as machine embroidery.

I belong to a felting group in Wales, the International Felters Association & two local embroidery groups.  I am also a member of the Shropshire Guild of Contemporary Crafts & attend selling & exhibition events with them.

I also run occasional workshops in felting at the Minerva Centre in Llanidloies, and tutor workshops for Guilds & groups.

Felting has so many possibilities so you never stop learning.
