Felter, dyer and tutor
As the main focus of Tracy’s work is centred around responding to nature, she was delighted to be asked to participate once more in “In The Garden With Friends”.
Expanding the garden theme to include trees, Tracy’s work has been created especially for this exhibition. Her birch tree vessels are, in part, inspired by the poem “song trees“ by Morgan Downie and partly in response to the many hours she spends wandering through forests of birch trees.
Preferring to create predominantly with ethically sourced and local fibre Tracy particularly enjoys the transformative nature of the process that occurs when water, soap and movement are applied to individual wool fibres. In essence, a magical alchemy.
Working out of her dedicated felting workshop in Crieff, Tracy is also the proprietor of Lagom Felt Studio – a fibre and yarn emporium with accompanying art and craft gift gallery.
