Sarah Lawrence - a felt maker and contemporary textile artisan from Newark in the UK passed away suddenly on 2nd December 2011.
Sarah's work was recognised around the world. She was chairman of the IFA prior to Liz Clay and has written many books. Her web presence is her blog http://sarah-lawrence.com/blog/ and her web site http://www.sarah-lawrence.com/.
She combined her innovative approach to felt-making with embroidery, beadwork and gilding to produce rich, textured pieces that have been exhibited worldwide. Bunbury Felter - Val Hornibrook was fortunate enough to meet Sarah many years ago in Perth and said Sarah's work was amazing.
Our condolences go out to her family and friends. The felt making community will be poorer without her.
