Felt never Fails

My name is Liz Gaffney

I started my working life as a florist achieving my diploma in 1988. I discovered felt making with sheep wool and was hooked. I launched Heartfelt by Liz in 1996. With my love of plants and textiles I have merged my passions in Botanical Printing and Natural Dyeing. I have been teaching since 1996 in this country and around the world. Felt has never failed to inspire and captivate both me and the students I sow seeds in.
