Original & Inspirational felt art produced on the Isle of Eigg.
My name is Libby Galli and I live and work on the beautiful Isle of Eigg off the west coast of Scotland, where the amazing views and the clarity of the light help to inspire my work. I am a self taught felt artist and have been creating felt art for over 15 years.
My works of art are produced by needle-felting dyed merino tops and silk fibres onto a wet felted background. They are then double mounted to keep the felt from touching the glass and then framed.
These soft and very tactile wall hangings are unique, perfect for an unusual gift, I weave the wall hangings on a peg loom, using natural fleece from Island sheep. The warp is a natural jute twine, The subject is then needle-felted onto the wall hanging using dyed merino tops and silk fibres.
If you have a much loved pet, favourite animal or landscape and would like to commission a specific piece of felt art, I can create it as a felt painting. All I need to work from is a clear photograph. I also take commissions for felt scarves just send me a message in the contact section and I will get back to you for info on the colours and design you would like.
I thoroughly enjoy running felt art workshops from my home on the Isle of Eigg. Lasting between 3-5 hours they are suitable for individuals or small groups of up to 5. They are great fun. Needle-felting is very therapeutic and addictive !! Inspiring most of my pupils to go on and embrace needle-felting as a new hobby.
