She mostly works with sheep’s wool to felt works of art but also incorporates knitting, embroidery and stitching. Alice looks to nature, animals and folk art for inspiration and likes to tell stories which incorporate her Eastern European ancestry, myth and spirituality. Alice took up needle felting eight years a go and although she mostly works with Corriedale wool, she also incorporates fabrics, cotton, beads, possum fur, human hair, feathers and other natural materials into her work. Needle felting is a dry felting technique where a barbed needle is used to repeatedly jab fibres. This process tangles and compacts the fibres together. The needle is used as a sculptural tool to create flat or three-dimensional pieces of art. TERESA GOODIN - Artist & Alchemist Teresa creates complex and colourful handcrafted collages inspired by ancient cultures, esoteric wisdom and the beauty of the natural world. Teresa has been using collage as a tool for exploring consciousness and deepening self-awareness for over 20 years. In recent years she has been exploring feminine archetypes through the lens of mythology and astrology. Teresa graduated from Whanganui’s Quay School of the Arts in 2000 where she majored in photography. In 2007 she graduated with a Post Graduate Diploma in Art and Design from AUT. Teresa is also a spiritual counsellor, a specialist in the Sacred Plant Medicine of Aotearoa and an apprentice Buddhist Chaplain trained to support people to pass peacefully. She has a private consultation space adjacent to her art studio where she sees clients and dispenses custom made remedies.  " data-src="">
