Welcome to our website. My name is Heather Kerner and I have been making felt for about 10 years. With my roots in Maine, I have found the material that weaves together an interest in farming, a need for the warmth of wool, a desire to sculpt and paint using natural materials from the land, physical exercise, and artistry in everyday objects. I have specialized in making woolen vessels for finer galleries and craft shows throughout the United States.

You can finally see a pattern outlining my technique in Carol Cypher's new book entitled "How We Felt," by Interweave Press, as well as images of my work in the upcoming book "1000 Artisan Textiles", by Lark Books, due out in May 2010.

I am currently exploring the richness of felt in combination with Maine leather from the Irving Tannery to make functional handbags, portfolios, and zippered art cases as well as combining handmade felt with knitted garments. Please take a look!

Feel free to contact me at the address above or by using the contact form located on this website.

Warm regards,

"... may your fabric be especially strong. May your pattern be unusually beautiful."
