Sophie Wheatley - felt dog artist.

I became an accidental felt artist in 2012 when I found myself facing a new direction in life.

Needle felting wasn’t even on my radar back then, but once I realised the endless possibilities of needle felt - I was hooked.

I was immediately drawn to making dogs. Their characterful faces and sometimes shaggy coats make them the perfect muses.

And since 2013 when I launched my business, I’ve made hundreds of dogs of ALL shapes and types , some passed, most still with us but which all bring a smile to the faces of their owners.

I’ve got workshops you can join in person for beginners and those with a bit of experience too. I’m also online if you live over the other side of the world you can still make adorable needle felt dogs with me.
